I was first diagnosed with ganglioneuroblastoma in the spinal cord at age seven. I went through chemotherapy and radiation treatment at several hospitals until I went into remission at age twelve. When I was 27 I found out that I had Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, most likely caused by the treatment I received when I was younger. I did chemotherapy and it went away for two years. I then found out that the Hodgkin’s had come back and I underwent chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant when I was 29. I had been in remission almost five years when I started having difficulties walking and moving. I then found out that I had glioblastoma that has now left me paralyzed from the chest down. I underwent treatment of chemo and radiation that had kept the tumors at bay for almost two years until I just found out in September of this year that the tumors had grown and spread from the base of my brain all the way down my neck and to the bottom of my spine.
