Hi friends! Welp, it all began on December 16th when a silver dollar sized lump (come to later learn lymph node) on my neck decided to make a grand entrance. My primary care doctor was hoping it was mono, but a day later we found out it was time for a CT scan because the mono screen came back negative.  A day later I was sent for a biopsy of the node. Christmas came and went, while my nerves were steadily out of control. The day after Christmas the call came and I was told the biopsy was inconclusive and I would go 12/27 for surgery to remove the node. It was New Years Day when I found out the worst news of my life: I was diagnosed with Nodular Sclerosis Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Happy 2018 right?  I have decided to make this site (with the help of some family and friends) to keep everyone updated as much as I can throughout this rollercoaster ride. Xo
