mainly affects young people in their 20's and around 1400 people are
diagnosed in then UK every year. It is a disease of the Lymphatic system.
The Lymphatic system is a complex system of lymph organs (such as tonsils
and bone marrow) and lymph nodes connected by a network of lymphatic
vessels. This system is part of the body's natural defence against
infection. Hodgkin's Lymphoma usually affects groups of lymph nodes in one
area of the body such as the neck or armpit.
In January this year Lynden attended Hammersmith hospital for a Stem Cell
transplant. The operation has resulted in him being hospitalised ever since.
For nine months he has been in intensive care fighting for his life. His
spirit has never been broken though and despite all his problems he has
asked if we can help him raise money for fellow sufferers.
