It also sheds light on the history of the fight against lymphoma, as well as different types of treatment available, and personal experiences from those who have recovered from the illness.
Gu Hongfei, the founder of House 086, is a survivor of lymphoma, witnessing the advancement of treatment options for the disease in China in recent years.
