I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your father from stage 4 non-Hodgkin lymphoma and I cannot imagine how difficult it has been for you. I’m also sorry to hear that you have been rejected for genetic testing, which is surprising given you had a recommendation from your consultant. Were you provided with any explanation about the reasons behind the decision? If not, I would encourage you to go back to the decision maker to get a better understanding of the decision making process here. You may well have already read it, but there is a useful article from Cancer Research UK on genetic testing, which includes a little information on private testing which may be an option for you but I would recommend talking this over with your GP and/or your consultant first. I hope this is useful for you, and do keep us updated if you feel comfortable to. In the meantime however, please don’t hesitate to contact our support services team if you wanted to talk further about this, or anything else regarding the recent loss of your father.
