I was recently diagnosed with non hodgkins. I am a 37 year old mother of three beautiful children with a very supportive husband. I am sending this out there to see if i can connect with anyone my age who has the same diagnosis and issues. i know so many people with cancer but none with non hodgkins. I start chemo next week in conjunction with ritoxin. i am in the process of reaching out to others to share their experiences with me. i have low grade lymphoma that was found by the lump on the right side of my face on the parotid gland. it has spread to the area above my collarbone and possibly my right pelvis but has not reached my vital organs or my bone marrow. i have absolutely no symptoms and feel fine. my doctor and i decided to not go for the wait and see approach but to start treating it immediately. Just wondering if anyone out there has any words of encouragement. i would like to be able to speak to a mom in my situation.
