On January 20th, 2022 I was having severe shoulder pain when my boyfriend made me go to the hospital. While there, they found a tumor the size of an apricot in my chest. At that time, I felt like I knew what was going to happen because my brother was diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma five years ago. Over the next month I had multiple tests and doctors appointments including a tissue biopsy, a bone marrow biopsy, and a lot of scans.
As a younger single mom of three kids, this has been a different and trying time. I still currently work full time as a nurse. I continue along this path with treatment with the full support of my family and partner which has made the process a lot easier for me.
