I'm writing this post with a heavy heart. I've just heard very tragic news! An acquaintance of mine has been suffering from Crohn's for many years. He was excited when Remicade was approved for Crohn's, hoping that it would finally give hime a new lease on life. Unfortunately, this excitement turned into a terrible nightmare when he was diagnosed with Lymphoma (a form of cancer). Lymphoma is a side affect of remicade, affecting one in 3,000 people. After a few months of treatment and struggling for his life, he sadly passed away, leaving over a family of six children (youngest 4 months old). I hope that this story will be an inspiration for Crohn's and Colitis sufferers. Remicade (and other strong drugs) should be used as a last resort!

Do you know if Humira (from the same drug family as Remucade) also causes lymphoma?
