Hi everyone! Thank you for all the love and support I’ve received already. I realize there are lots of questions about what’s going on, so this site will be a place for me to explain what we know so far and provide updates.

In early April, I was diagnosed with Stage III Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, which is a type of cancer that affects the immune system. Fortunately, Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is one of the most treatable types of cancer, and my prognosis is very good. I will be starting chemotherapy in early May, with the goal of being cancer-free in 6 months. I will be updating this site periodically during those 6 months as new information becomes available.

Thank you for reading💜
