Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a form of cancer that attacks healthy blood cells.
There are various forms of the disease, which is categorised by its aggressiveness. The less aggressive forms of the disease can be treated successfully, while the more virulent versions can be fatal if not treated in time. A spokesperson from Allen’s firm Vulcan declined to say what strain of the disease he had.
Back in 1983 Allen was successfully treated for the related Hodgkin’s disease.
