Brief Summary:
  1. To explore specific aspects of social adaptation such as social connectedness, occupational outcomes and family relationships in lymphoma patients after autologous blood or marrow transplantation (BMT).
  2. To investigate how social adaptation varies with time lapsed since BMT and with the life stage as determined by patient?s age. Understanding both the positive and negative aspects of cancer and cancer therapy leads to opportunities to promote adaptive strategies.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
autologous BMT recipients
Lymphoma patients who received an autologous BMT as adults
Procedure: Semi structured personal interview
A trained research assistant will conduct in-person, in-depth semi-structured interviews at a location of the participants choosing. Participants will be asked to discuss their experiences with cancer, focusing especially on how their cancer affected their (1) work/education (2) relationships with their family (spouse, children, parents, siblings and other relatives) (3) their other social relationships



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Specific aspects of social adaptation, such as social connectedness, occupational outcomes and family relationships in lymphoma patients after autologous blood or marrow transplantation (BMT) [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  2. Social adaptation variation with time lapsed since BMT and with the life stage as determined by patient's age [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
