What’s with the Good Cancer?

Last updated: November 2023

If you’ve been diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma, I’m sure you’ve heard the term “good cancer.” How does it make you feel? Personally, I’m not the biggest fan. When someone uses that term, I do my best to educate people about why it’s probably not the best thing to say.

After watching my video, do you understand why this term could be offensive? Have you been told that you have the "good cancer" before? Sound off in the comments! :)
