my name is Katie. I was diagnosed with Hodgkins disease last year at 22yrs old, right after graduating from college. I was stage 2B, and had a large mediastinal mass that qualified for bulky disease. I was given 12 ABVD treatments and 4 weeks of radiation therapy and just finished treatment last week (Yay!).
I just want to say I know there are alot of young people out there with the disease who have alot of questions and not alot of people there age to talk about it with. I was lucky enough to have a doctor who had 2 people close to my age call me and tell me about their experiences. This was SO helpful to me cause it gave me a general idea of what to anticipate. Now that I have finished, I want to be of help to others, and also be in a place where there are people like me, cause the best place to find support is where people can relate. So if any of you ever have any questions or wanna hear someone else's experience, feel free to email me, I will be glad to talk/share/whatever :)
Blessings to you all!
