I was diagnosed with Stage 3b Hodgkins Lymphoma on January 3, 2008. There was an enlarged lymph node under my left arm, which was the first sign of this disease. By the time I was diagnosed, the cancer had spread to all of my lymph nodes. Fortunately, the cancer had not spread to my bone marrow. I began chemotherapy treatments immediately, which spanned over six months at two week intervals. Throughout the course of my treatments, I continuded working and attending my classes at Californai State Dominguez Hills. In May, with only a few chemo treatments left, I graduated with honors in Business Management and Finance. I finished chemotherapy treatments in early July and was officially declared to be in remission on July 11, 2008.
