My cancer journey

I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in June of 2006. Here is my first post.

It was a shocker. My lymph node in my upper chest was swollen to the size of a tennis ball. There were some interesting spots on my left lung that convinced the doctors that we had to do an emergency thoracotomy where a portion of my left lung was removed for a biopsy. I started chemotherapy shortly after that. It was a scary time in my life. I could not have been a survivor without my faith, family and AMAZING friends.

If you want to read more about my journey with (the bully) cancer click on the cancer label on the sidebar in the label cloud. Other labels that probably have cancer posts in them are chemo visits, blessings, change is good, faith, family, and health care.

Or you can read archived posts by date starting in June of 2006. Here are some tidbits of that journey.

Amazing prophets of love, people from the village who came to Rally for Rani. This photo takes my breath away and brings tears to my eyes EVERY time I look at it. This is why I pour my heart and soul into SpudFest. I love this village.
