    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I am a survivor of 12 years from Hodgekins Lymphoma, I went for a physical and peas sent for a scan for what they thought was a hernia. Only to find several enlarged lymph nodes in my abdomen. After a biopsy confirmed non-Hodgekins lymphoma further test revealed that it was also in several other places.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I began chemo almost three weeks ago. This time around I have two young children and it is very difficult to not have the energy that I used to for them. I have had pain and hair loss as my side effects.
