Lately I’ve been spending quite a bit of time at a VA Medical Center. My husband, an Army veteran, Korean Era, has acquired a rare illness called Balt non-Hodgins lymphoma.
Just this week we met with my husband’s new oncologist. She is a young, petite doctor, and we were very impressed by her calm, compassionate attitude. Actually, we’ve been satisfied with all the VA doctors so far.
Whenever we’re at the VA, I pick up literature, and am always amazed by what I learn. The War Related Illness and Injury Study Center (WRIISC) is a VA National program that specializes in post-deployment care for Veterans with Difficult to Diagnose Illnesses and deployment related exposure concerns.
