Surviving Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

29788392_15259692360_r.jpegHey y’all !!! As most of you may already know and for those who don’t, on May 1st 2018 I was diagnosed with Stage II Hodgkin’s Lymphoma which is cancer of the lymphatic system. What started off being a visit to the ER on 4/17/18 (thinking I had bronchitis) turned out to be a diagnosis of cancer and pleural effusion. The doctors at MCA discovered a tumor in the mediastinum of my chest the size of an avocado or 5 inches in diameter and 3 Liters of fluid in my lung. Doctors are unable to surgically remove the tumor because it is encased with vital blood cells and tissues. Unfortunately, it continues to increase in size, it is now blocking my Jugular vein and continues to cause me problems to breath. I currently have a catheter placed in my left lung in order to drain fluid once a week because it accumulates pretty fast. My treatment plan consists of 2-4 rounds of chemotherapy which includes 4 different types of medicines to shrink the tumor then radiation therapy to kill it and possible surgery to follow. I do have insurance but they only want to cover so much and the remainder is what My parents and I have left to pay out of pocket. So far my medical bills total over $10,000 and they expect me to pay a certain amount before I can even get treated. This disease has kept me out of work for the past month and a half and will continue to do so for about the next 6 months. This page is created for any and everyone who would like to help me by donating. Any amount helps and is greatly appreciated whether it be $5 or $10. I thank y’all for your continued support and will keep everyone updated as I continue this journey to survival. I CANCER VIVE
