How awesome for you to write and tell this story. These are the stories that help and give great hope. My son is 19 now and will be very happy to hear this. He also has a wonderful spirit. Thank you.

You are so welcome! My goal in life is to give hope. afterall, there was "no hope" for me according to the doctors. Your son is young and he will do great and live to a ripe old age.

Thank you so much for the encouraging message. I can't tell you how much I need to hear something like that while I am going through my treatments. I am so excited about starting my life over after I beat this...and I know it will be a long and happy one. Thanks again for posting that for all of us to see. :)

Yes! You can beat this. I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hogkins, which is about as far as it can get. It was in my organs and in my bone marrow. But less than a year after my first diagnoses here I am! Cancer free. Kavnan, tell your son he will be fine. I'm only 22 and I am looking forward now to a long happy life.
