I recently found out that I'm in remission. I was diagnosed last August, since then I've completed ABVD and radiation. I'd love to hear from anyone around my age who is or has been treated for this disease.

Hi Sherra,
Congratulations on your remission! My name is Michael and I was diagnosed with leukemia when I was 21 years old. I am 29 now and have been in remission for almost 7 years! If you would like to contact me, my email: leu_lym@yahoo.com
Take care,

Hey great news! I love hearing success stories. I had the ABVD treatments and radiation for HD too. It never went away for me so I had an autologous stem cell transplant and it seems to have done the trick (fingers crossed). I have a web page on this site if you want to contact me...it's under dramerth.

HI Sherra,

I'm 25 years old and I had Hodgkin's when I was 17. I was treated with ABVD/MOPP and radiation. I've been pretty healthy since then.

Hi Sherra. This is my 1st time to this web-site. I had Hodgkins & was treated w/MOPP & ABVD at age 13. I'm now 26 :) I do have some health problems & I'm thinking it may be related to the chemo I received. Other than that I'm proud to be a survivor! Let me know if you have any questions. Michelle

Hi Michelle,
I am a acute lymphoblastic leukemia survivor. I was diagnosed when I was 21 years old. I am now 29 and have been in remission for almost 7 years. You caught my attention when you mentioned you still have some lingering problems. So do I. I have fatigue and some short term memroy problems. What problems do you have? Are they lifetime? Do you work, school, hobbies?? My email is:
leu_lym@yahoo.com
Also, my leukemia website is:
www.geocities.com/leukemia_lymphoma

I would like to hear from you and know how you deal with these long term difficulties. THanks a bunch! Take care.
-Michael

Hey I am a 21 year old survivor I have been in remission for almost 3 years now. I also went through ABVD and radiation treatment. It is a rough road to have to follow and to find anyone to talk to about it with it a wonderful thing. I would like to talk with you sometime.
