Welcome to my CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement.
I was diagnosed with classical Hogdkins Lymphoma, stage 2a on 7/7/17. I have a big cancerous spot near the top of my right lung, 3 lymph nodes in my right chest / neck area that are cancerous and potentially a lymph node in my nose that is infected too. I started chemo on 7/27/17, they call it a cocktail of drugs (ABVD) and I'll have at least 4 rounds maybe more. I go every other week for chemo. Once chemo is done I'm slated to do 2-3 weeks of Radiation in Rochester. They want me to do a special kind called Proton therapy. I'm a good candidate because of my age, type of cancer and they have special radiation that can better target my spots.
