@MissThespian: OMG I’m so sorry to hear this. HUGS I know what you are going through. When I was 16 I was diagnosed with stage 3 Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma also. It was found in my chest wrapped around my heart, lungs and arteries and about the size of a grape fruit. I went through 6 months of chemo and a lot of not fun moments. I want to tell you that being surrounded by friends, family and a lot of laughter are what cured me. I’m a firm believer in laughter is the best medicine. Sure the doctors were wonderful and the drugs did their part…but I made sure I stayed positive and laughed daily. I have now been in remission for 15 almost 16 years. Last year on my birthday I got the cancer awareness ribbon tattooed on my left wrist. If you need anyone to talk to please message me. I will listen, I have been in your shoes and…well it sucks. But I can share more of my story and hopefully give you hope. By The Way here is my tattoo:

@MissThespian: I am so so so sorry to hear this! I felt the need to respond because I had stage 4 cancer (gangleonueroblastoma) when I was 8 (Yes you read that right.) It was found when I was on vacation and has flu like symptoms so my mom took me to the ER. I am now 25, happy and healthy! Cancer is an absolutely horrible epidemic and will probably be the biggest struggle of your life. Try to stay strong and stay positive! Make sure you surround yourself with the people you love and that love you. Having them there is all you need to get through this scary time! My thoughts are will you to kick cancers butt!!!! You can do it 🙂

My SO was also diagnosed with cancer at 26. It is not something you really think about happening to people so young. But it hs brought about a lot of positives in regard to his health. They were able to address other issues as well. I’m glad that you have figured out what is happening in your body and wish you a speedy recovery. Prayers and thoughts and all sorts of good juju heading your way. Remember you have a good support system with you. That can only help.

Hi everyone! I thought I would update you on my status. My last chemo treatment is scheduled for July 30 and I couldn’t be more thrilled. They did scans about a month and a half ago that showed it was 80% gone!
However, I am typing this in a rehabilitation center while I sit in a wheelchair. Complications from my first chemo treatment caused nerve damage to my legs, which caused a loss in strength to the point where I’m having to relearn how to walk. It’s not the ideal situation but I’m just lucky to be alive. Complications also included lung failure, kidney failure, and a medically induced coma.
I was in the ICU for about 6 weeks and scared to death of dying almost the whole time. 3/4 of the time I was hooked up to a ventilator to keep me breathing. I couldn’t eat, drink, or talk and was absolutely miserable.
But my family and fiance stuck by me through the whole thing and it made me appreciate them so much more for all they have done for me. They’ve really shown me what it means to love someone and be a family and now I’m 30 days away from finally going home, I’m starting to walk again, my kidneys are working, I can eat, drink, and talk, and I love my fiance and family more than I ever have before.
Thank all of you bees for all of your prayers and support. I can’t tell you how much it means to me to have strangers out there rooting for me too.
