  • I was just diagnosed with that. I have been put through 2 months of scans, bloodwork, bone marrow biopsy and lympnoid biopsy. I have one more Dr. looking at biopsy slides put they are pretty sure thats what I have. Of course I can't find a Dr. to help with it here. I would love to get information on this since it is so rare or speak with someone that has it. I am a 26 year old female in florida.
