A Survivor’s Story

The one thing I wanted when I was sick, besides to survive, was to meet survivors. I wanted to know that there were others out there who had been to hell and back and they were living normal lives. This cancer thing was just a speed bump in their life. That’s what I had been told, this is just a speed bump. It’s pretty hard to visualize an itty bitty speed bump when you are in the midst of fighting for your life, but here I am sixteen years after being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and I can see their perspective now. I can also see how important it is to share our stories. To let others know that they are not alone.

So, here I am to share my story of survival. I will post about everything from how I first discovered I was sick to going back to normal life and how challenging that was for me. I also want to hear from others who have survived and feel like they want to share any part of their story. There can never be too many examples of hope.
