Angelina L

Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma

My name is Angelina Lorello, I’ve been with New York Cancer & Blood Specialists (NYCBS) since I was 16 years old. Before I was born, my father was diagnosed on his 30th birthday with Non- Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. My father’s chances of living were slim due to the tumor wrapped around his heart. He was on the verge of a massive heart attack. My father was given three days to live but was saved and cured when he was put in the hands of NYCBS. NYCBS gave me my life when the odds were against my parents for having more children. My father’s strength and mindset have taught me never to give up. My father is my best friend, my hero, and NYCBS gave me that. NYCBS gave me my life and my father, keeping the Lorello name alive. That is something I will never be able to repay. So my goal is to give back to NYCBS, spread positivity, and set the mindset to never give up. To the patients, and caregivers, miracles happen, and I can vouch for that.
