Jerry Daniels was diagnosed with Diffused Large B cell Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2001. He went through surgery and RCHOP chemotherapy and the cancer went into remission. Unfortunately, Jerry’s cancer would return, multiple times, over the next 15 years. His first relapse was in 2008, the second in 2014 and again in 2015. Each time the cancer returned, a new treatment plan was put into place. Jerry has gone through multiple surgeries, 38 radiation treatments, multiple chemotherapy treatments, a bone marrow/stem cell transplant and recently started a trial at Emory which was suspended. He is currently receiving IVIG treatments to help support his weakened immune system and the plan is that he will restart his ABT 199 trial soon.
Jerry lives in Evans, Georgia with Pam, his wife of 44 years. They have two sons (Brent and Matt) and six grandchildren, ranging in age from 2 – 15 years old. Jerry and Pam are familiar with cancer, in addition to Jerry’s battle with lymphoma, they lost Pam’s mom and both of Jerry’s parents to cancer. Jerry loves traveling and golf, and hosts a golf tournament each year to benefit LLS.
