Hi, My name is Jake. I had Hodgkins 2a. I went through 12 Chemos and 4 weeks of raditaion. I was 17 when diagnosed, Now I am 18 years old. I have been in remisson for about 4 months.
When I was told by the doctor that the lump on my neck was cancer, it had little effect on me. What got me was watching my mom cry in the doctors office. That was the hardest time during the whole thing. I guess you could call me a strong person... But lately I haven't been feeling so strong. For sometime now I've had a fear that my cancer will come back. I realize that this is a pretty common thing for all of us to fear. I'm not very worried about the fact of someday getting it again. I beat it once, I'll do it again if I have to. I'm just worried about my mom. I really hate to see her go through the pain of watching her baby boy go through that.
