Hello, I am a 25 year survivor of Hodgkins. when i was first diagnosed my son was 3 weeks old and there had been effective treatments for only one year! i was sure i was going to die and never see my son grow up. he is now 25 and a fine young man. one of the things i found most helpful was a book called "getting well again" by dr's simonton and simonton. it is still published and many of you probably have it. i still have my copy and turn to it now and then. if any of you wish to be in touch my email is
mcchart@yahoo.com. feel free to contact me. god bless. you CAN do it.

It was so great to see your message, we both are very long term survivors ( 26 years for me) and we both know how scared these young people are. they need to know they can make it just like we did.
