Hi my name is Christie and I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma on November 4, 2008. I am 42 years old and have a very loving husband, Kevin and two children, Kelsey (14) and Liam (3) oh and I can not forget about St Patrick (Paddy) our Jack Russell (8).


Last year May 2010, I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins.All of this has happened really fast! I got my port in last Friday and have had many test (scans, blood work, lung test, heart ECHO) and the worst ..... the bone marrow biopsy done on Monday, that was awful! Now here we go....Today I go for my first Chemo Treatment and that coctail mix will be ABVD (that is the first letter of each med that will be in the chemo, so I have been told while I have been in a complete fogg as all of this has been happening.) I am not really nervous, or should I say not right at this moment but that is subject to change. Well my family needs to be woken up now to start this beautiful day, but I will let you know how things are going later. Thanks for listening! Christie
