23 year old with Hodgkin's Lymphoma looking for supports online

Hello, 

I am 23 years old with Hodgkin's lymphoma. I have completed 4 chemos, and one surgery remove nodes. Im new to this site. I was wanting to connect with people with the same condition and see there experiences, its also difficult as Im not in contact with any young people and want someone to relate . I am open and happy to have anyone of any age and any condition to talk to, its not exclusive, and would just like to hear of others experiences.thank you

Hi. 

My name is Marcus 

We never know what is orotund the corner. Who would of thought at 23 you would be diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, a real shock to the system. Both physically and mentally just trying to get your head around it all. 

A real kick in the guts. 

I was 43 when I was diagnosed with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2006 I had Chemo followed by radiotherapy. I have been Cancer free for 11 years now. 

. I remember feeling shocked and just pure disbelief 

Also feeling it was a fight I would fight and come out the other side. 

One step one day at a time

If there is anything I can help you with please let me Know. 

Be kind to yourself

cheers

Marcus

Hello, 

Just after Christmas in 2018 I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. I am also 23 years old. As of this post I have finished two chemo treatments (hooray)! Only five more months to go! 🙂 I realize that as I am posting this almost a year after yours that you may be done with treatment. Anyway, I just wanted to wish you all the best and I hope you kicked cancers butt!!

Re: 23 year old with Hodgkin's Lymphoma looking for supports online

Thanks for the support friends. It's been a year since I was diagnosed with cancer. After 12 chemoes and radiation I am all fit and went back to my daily life . During my cancer period I got worried so much, thus my post here .I hoped for someone with similar experience for support. The community wasn't active then. I wish it was. But anyhow I kicked cancer out of my body. Now let's join together if it's possible, so that we could provide that support to other people who are in pain. If you're interested let's do it
