I'm 61 YO and was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Disease in June 2005. After 6 months of ABVD chemo I was declared in remission. 3 months later at my 1st PET scan the cancer was found to have returned. Several months & treatments later I underwent an autologus stem cell bone marrow transplant. It has now been 3+ years since my transplant and my scans are still clean and I'm still cancer free! As everyone knows this is simply a synopsis of everything that took place over the past 4.5 years. It's a long, hard journey that we all must take and that does include our family & friends who also must travel that road with us. A huge thank you go out to all of them for everything they've done over this time to help. Sometimes just a hug was all that was needed; other times helping out with daily life chores...but with their help & support we've gotten through it all. My prayers go out for all those who have or are still fighting their own battle with cancer and those who travel with them. God Bless you All!
