My Story

It was a regular Saturday morning, I woke with a lump on my neck. What I thought was a combination of a pulled muscle from lifting heavy boxes at work and sleeping wrong turned out to be the worst nightmare of my life. Here I was a healthy 20 year old one minute and then the next minute I was being told “You have Hodgkin’s Lymphoma”. It felt like I was punched in the stomach, really is the best way to describe it. I am currently undergoing chemo therapy. It is a struggle day to day trying to combat the side effects of the chemo, but I am working through it. I KNOW I WILL BEAT THIS!!! Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive to me and my family during this difficult time. Love, Kyle
