Hello everyone. I want to first say that I am in awe of you all. I read your stories about your triumps and struggles and find them very inspiring. Congratulations to each of you for your success in beating this horrible thing, and I pray for you and others still going through that the rest of the treatment will be swift and as painless as possible.
My story is as follows.
December 4th, I found out I was pregnant. After he found out I was pregnant, then he started to worry about what his lump was. Tests confirmed a week ago tomorrow that it is indeed Hodgkins. We are devestated to say the least.
I worry about going through this pregnancy along side his chemo. We are a one incomed family (his), so financially I am scared to death. I have no family around for support. Plus, I have a 4 year old daughter already. Neither he nor I have ever been around cancer or chemo so I am unsure of what to expect as far as his health condition. He goes in Monday for his first Oncologist visit.
Anyone with any financial or emotional suggestions for getting us through the next year would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for the help and thank you for listening to my story.
