I'm a 20 year old Hodgkin's survivor. Been in remission for a year. Let me know if you have any questions.

Hello Angie my name is Marcus & I would love to talk with you. I totally understand. I survived a rare and deadly cancer twice now and though I am stronger for it I know quite well what it's like to live in that fear of it coming back. I'm new to this is there a way to Instant Message on here? If not my email is Marvusman@aol.com and my cell phone is 267-601-4043 I do have unlimited text if you care to text. Hope you stay well!

I'm 24 year old hodgkins survivor. I know what it's like to be all alone. The women in my support group are all in their 50's and 60's. I wish there were other people my age who get what I'm going through. Does anyone know of support groups for people in their 20's?

Lily,

Where do you live? If you live somewhere near my area, there is a young adult survivorship group that meets.

I'm an hour outside of NYC by the CT border. Since I posted that, I found the website for i2y, a foundation that supports young adults with cancer. I joined their NYC chapter and will be attending my first event soon. I'm really excited b/c I've been looking for survivors my age and we're so few and far between. Where are you from? Nice to "meet" you! lol
