My daughter Julia is 13 years old and was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma on October 19, 2020. She had intense itching episodes on her arms and legs along with swollen lymph nodes that her dermatologist misdiagnosed her for along time with different things. We wanted answers.
After many tests we had answers, she has stage 2 cancer. And her itch is a Hodgkin itch, a rare symptom. Julia just completed her second cycle of chemotherapy and her itch has subsided. We are just beginning her journey.
Julia is continuing to fight. She is strong girl through and through, I admire her strength and determination through this.
