I was first told I had non-hodgkin's lymphoma at the age of 20. I had no idea what that was, I just knew it was a form of cancer and that there was a possibility that I may not survive.
My first reaction was shock, then I was in denial, and then I felt scared. I came to an acceptance that I may not live but I have to at least fight trying.
I started my treatments of chemotherapy and radiation. I'm now proud to say it's been 26 years since. I survived! I beat Cancer!
