Hi. I was a cancer survivor until two weeks ago. I was diagnosed with follicular non hodskins lymphoma stage 4 in January last year. Went thru chemo 8 cycles of chemotherapy. Was in remission up until a two weeks ago till I went for a check up.
The disease is back, but the lymph nodes are not is big as they were previously. For now it's just to monitor myself and see the heamotologist in 3 months again. If it comes back, I will then have to go for a very aggressive chemo and bone marrow transplant.
So I would like to give while I still can. I cannot begin to imagine what it must be like for a child. Please support my cause as fighting cancer is a very tough thing to do.
We are all warriors and the bravest of brave.
