One of my colleagues is now going through a very difficult time. Her daughter Iryna, who is 22 years old, was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma(it’s a form of cancer). Iryna is two months away from her graduation from CU Boulder and she is going to become a chemical engineer. She is a very bright and lively person. She has so many different talents, and loves hiking, music, dancing and learning something new every day. She has a big heart and always offers help when someone is in need. She has so many plans and ideas and dreams for the future, and at this time she is facing the reality of being a cancer patient. At this point the family has to pay a lot of medical expenses for the treatment and the money that will be raised will tremendously help them!
