The Process

After being diagnosed, I almost immediately started treatment. I received a type of Chemotherapy known as ABVD, an acronym standing for a whole bunch of crazy drugs! I had 12 rounds which lasted about six months. Every time I had treatment it got harder. The taste was the worst!! Not being able to eat was literally  torture. But somehow, with a lot of patience and trying to have a positive attitude, I made it through! The last treatment was bittersweet. I was so happy to be done with Chemo, but scared of the unknown after. At the end of these treatments I had a scan. The scan came back positive still for cancer. I was shocked because I thought I was done for good! I mean it was the end of April 2012, I had summer to look forward to and plans that were emerging. But now life was turned upside down again.

I have waited almost 4 months now and finally have a new treatment plan and goal. It's going to be one crazy ride! And this is why I am creating this blog, so I can share with whoever reads this! Feel free to comment on anything, good or bad.
