I was diagnosed in January 2016 with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and because there was an additional spot found in the lung was immediately labeled STAGE IV! We are from Decatur Illinois and searched for a second opinion and found it in Dr. Gordon. He and his nurse Betsy talked with me and my wife for over an hour and assured us all would be well. Today is December 18, 2019 and the latest SCANS show NO cancer ANYWHERE in my body. He totally agreed with the chemo treatments for ;me in Decatur, Illinois and with the grace of G_d and doctors who really care I am alive at the tender age of 84!!! THANK you Dr. Gordon for your support through the years!
