I am raising money for cancer treatment. I was diagnosed with Hodgkin\'s Lymphoma in 2009 and after many rounds of chemotherapy, radiation and even a bone marrow transplant, the illness has returned. Now, I am planning on trying something different. There is a new drug called SGN-35 (Adcetris) that has been named the \"miracle drug\" for people like me with stubborn Hodgkin\'s lymphoma. It is very expensive and my health insurance is not covering it.
I\'ve started the treatment and so far, it has been amazing and so easy. I feel great and strong and tremendously grateful for all the help I\'ve received for loved ones, whether we\'ve met or not.
If you are interested in my story, take a look at the blog I\'ve been keeping for the last couple years.
