Hello, I am presently a 31 year old who survived a diagnosis of ALL and Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma in 1985. For many years I did not identify myself, to myself, as a "survivor" and I rationalized away the impact that my experiences had on my family and personal development. It is ironic that this May I will be graduating with a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology, and I am only now reaching back out to other survivors in hopes if connecting to a group of survivors, around my age, who live in or around Philadelphia.
I think joining the CSN is one small step towards re-integrating and processing what I and my family experienced so many years ago.
I was treated at CHOP and my wonderful Oncologist was Dr. Jean Belasco.
