My Story

Dear Family and Friends,

Heather has been diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma.  About three months ago, she found swollen lymph nodes in her neck near her collarbone.  We went to her routine physical in September.  At that time the doctor thought it may be due to the fact that she had pneumonia in August and we should keep an eye on it.  The swelling increased over the next month and another lymph node above her collarbone appeared.  From October to November, Heather has endured many tests, blood work, and biopsies in order to figure out what the cause was.  We were notified the Monday before Thanksgiving that Heather did in fact have Hodgkin's Lymphoma, Stage 2.  Over the last couple of weeks we have been preparing to start chemotherapy which began December 14, 2012. Heather has proven to be an amazingly strong young lady!  Together as a family, we are ready to help her FIGHT LIKE A GIRL.  This is our new motto for the Year 2013.  It just so happens that the signature color for Hodgkin's is PURPLE...Heather's favorite color.
