My mom was diagnosed with lymphoma back in October of last year (2005) She has completed 6 treatments of chemotherapy about 8 months ago.

They sent us down to West Penn Hospital to meet with an oncologist to do a stem cell transplant.

Now all of a sudden they say that she is not a good candidate for the stem cell transplant. She has a reactive lymphnode in her neck.

What happened? Why is she not a good candidate? I don't understand...Can someone shead some light on me?:rolleyes:
