Lymphoma Survivor

My name is Bethaney Jones and I am a Hodgkin's lymphoma survivor. I was diagnosed in April 2018 after a routine check up for a cough that lasted for months.

After my diagnosis, I was unable to complete the school year with my awesome third graders. I endured six months of chemotherapy and I was able to ring the bell on October 12, one day after my 28th birthday.

Almost a year later, I am getting ready to end a beautiful year with my amazing fourth graders which happen to be some of the students that I had to leave last year. I am blessed to be here and enjoying every day with a new perspective. God is truly great!
