Spyda the dj, born Emerson Gibson, was diagnosed at MedStar Washington Hospital with Stage 3 Hodgkins Lymphoma in August 2012. Since his diagnosis he has completed chemotherapy and radiation at Washington Cancer Institute, an autologous transplant at the University of Maryland Medical Center and consulted with Johns Hopkins. After several relapses Spyda underwent a Haplo-identical stem cell transplantation at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in November 2015. During his extended hospital stay, Spyda and his medical team led by Dr. Sawa Ito fought to bring his health to a status that allowed him to return home on June 10, 2016. This site was created as a response to the numerous questions asking “How can I help?”
