    Hodgkin disease, what online resources did you find the most helpful?

    We need your help again. We're working to improve our resources page and want to know, What online resources did you find the most helpful? For example, did you google your diagnoses? What cancer sites did you find? Did you look for financial resources, help with prescriptions, help with treatment expenses? Travel expenses, or a treatment center? Give us the run down of the first 48 hrs after you were diagnosed that you spent online. What did you want to know? And did you find it?

    With this information we can develop more resources for our fellow WhatNexters to help them find the help they are looking for, as quickly as possible. Give your tips and resources you found helpful and we may use your information in our articles to help others in the future.

      I found a great explanation of what Hodgkin's lymphoma was on the ACS website and I was glad to know that it came from a reputable source. Actually, this may not help you, but I went back and looked through the info from my biology classes in college. I remember learning about cancer but it takes on a whole new meaning once you're diagnosed.

      Yes, I'm talking about cancer.org and specifically this link seems to have just about everything you can think of:

      Cancer.org and the Leukemia & Lymphoma society. Many times information on Hodgkin's is lumped in with Non-Hodgkin's.
