A diagnosis of cancer is difficult and downright scary. The person receiving the diagnosis immediately starts wondering how it will affect my life and my family. The family surrounding the person starts contemplating what they can do to be supportive and helpful during treatment. As a cancer survivor, I have my own memories and experiences and I know my diagnosis affected all those that love and care for me. My diagnosis was for Hodgkin’s disease and with the help of many people I successfully completed 12 chemotherapy sessions. I am a little more than two years out of treatment and am doing very well.
