My Story

I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in September of 2014. I had no symptoms except for a swollen gland and some fatigue. I immediately had my port put in and started chemotherapy. I went through 4 months if chemotherapy and 21 days of radiation. It was tough and very draining, but I made it through, and  I found out in March that I am now in remission!
