Max’s story: living well with mantle cell lymphoma (MCL)

Max was 61 and leading an active life – cycling, swimming and running – when he was diagnosed with mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) in 2007.

He was in remission for nine years after having chemotherapy and stem cells. When he relapsed, his only option was oral targeted therapy, which he’s been on since 2017.

Max is back on his bike and exercising three times a week. He’s feeling good and enjoying life.
