Hang in there. I just finished my treatments (7 chemo and 25 radiation) for non-hodkin's lymphoma in my chest. I was stage 2B. I was so scare too. You need to listen to your body during the treatments, do exactly what your oncologist tells you to do, get yourself into a support group and just stay positive. When people offer to help, take them up on it. You will have good days and bad days but just stay focused on your treatment and sleep when you need to. Are you a single parent? do you have help in the home? Feel free to e-mail me on this site.

Good luck!!! I know how you feel!
