Porter Robinson’s brother, Mark, has officially finished chemotherapy after a long battle of treatments. Mark was diagnosed with Burkitt’s lymphoma on November 22nd after being hospitalized a few days earlier. Ever since then, he has been going through hell and anyone who has gone through this or knows someone who has had the treatment knows that it’s not an easy task. More than half of patients with the disease can be cured with intensive chemotherapy. The chance of survival is lowered if the cancer spreads to bone marrow or spinal fluid. We have been following this story for some time now and we’re happy to hear that Mark had to go through less treatments than expected this month. This is wonderful news for the community and we wish him even better health in the future.
Doctors told me today i’ll likely need 4 more rounds of chemotherapy than previously expected…
Trying really hard to stay positive.
