My Journey

Last updated: January 2019

So, my journey started in 2015, 2 weeks after my mother passed away from cancer. Needless to say, I was in a cloud the two years I battled my lymphoma.

I was told I had stage 4 and started chemo in January. I was diagnosed on December 26th. I went through a depressing state because I wasn’t able to mourn my mother since I was fighting my own battle.

I felt a hole was in my heart.

Battling cancer and loss

I did my treatments and maintenance ended in May of 2018, after two years - 1 year of chemo and Rituxan, then 1 year of just Rituxan. Then, in October 2018, I lost my father to cancer.

It has been the worst three years of my life. While I am blessed to have no activity of cancer right now, I only pray it never comes back. But who knows. So this is my story.
