Caitlin's Story, For the past 8 or 9 months Caitlin has been suffering from enlarged and painful lymph nodes. After many doctor visits, several blood test, multiple rounds of antibiotics and steroids, 1 needle biopsy, removal of her tonsils and adenoids and finally the removal of a lymph node. We have our answer Cancer.
On May 23, 2017 Caitlin Was diagnosed with lymphoma while undergoing a lymph node removal. On May 26 I received a report that stated that it could not rule out Hodgkin lymphoma but could rule out non-Hodgkin lymphoma. On Monday May 29, 2017 we received a copy of the pathology report stating that Caitlin has Classic Hodgkin's Lymphoma sub group mixed cellularity type (MCCHL)
June 9, 2017 Caitlin was approved to go to St Jude Hospital in Memphis TN. I am waiting for a call to tell us when our first appointment is.
I will update as often as there is new information to report and to respond to questions and/or commits .
Thank you for supporting Caitlin
