I was diagnosed on February 24, 2022 after a month of being increasingly sick with flu symptoms. I was just 23 years old. My official diagnosis is anaplastic large cell lymphoma, stage 3b, a rare subtype of Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. I was immediately started on a combination chemotherapy and immunotherapy treatment regimen. They initially removed a large tumor attached to my vocal cords that was making it hard to breathe and swallow, and I had rapidly lost weight since I was unable to swallow any solid food without choking. I just recently finished all my scheduled chemo and just underwent a PET scan to see if the cancer is responding to treatment.
