Help Sam kick cancer!!!

Well friends, its time for me to ask for all of your prayers, happy thoughts, good karma, zen, well wishes, or life demands. At this point I will take anything I can get. A month ago while training in KC for my new job, i thought i had come down with bronchitis or something because my chest hurt when I took deep breaths. So rather than spending my 3 days at home sick before hitting the road again, i decided to go to Urgent Care and nip my sickness in the bud. Urgent care turned into Er which turned into a CT scan finding a mass on my lung. I returned home for a biopsy, and as of last week was officially diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. While it is a cancer, it is curable. "They say" if you are going to get cancer, this is the one to get because of how treatable it is. My radiation post from earlier, wasn't actually radiation, but something they injected me with for a PET scan, which will tell us which stage my cancer is in. As for now, all i really know is that i will be starting chemo in the next few weeks, if not few days to shrink the 15 CM mass thats living inside me. Greg and I are staying positive and at this point there is nothing either of us, let alone any of you can do but send me those positive vibes. Since I’ll be under treatment for 4-6 months and unable to return to work, we will be starting a go fund me and caring bridge page so everyone can stay in the loop as well as support us in paying some of our medical and normal life bills. Love you all, and Don’t worry, I’m gonna kick this shit out as fast as I can and be back to my normal self before ya know it!!
