Life Changes

Hi, My name is Devon. I’m 19 years old. I have Hodgkin lymphoma stage 2a. I got diagnosed in September, after I had open chest surgery to get a big portion of the tumor out. I dont know anyone my age dealing with cancer. I wish this on nobody, but I still wish I had someone to talk to that understands what I’m going through. Even though I have cancer I still think my life is amazing. I just got engaged to the love of my life Keith. I have a supportive family and friends. I also have the faith of God and knowing that he will always help me through the bad stuff that happens in life. Well, if anyone wants to talk I have a cell phone and I have a facebook. Just let me know. xoxoxoxo

    Hi! I’m Emrene, and I’m 15 years old, so I don’t know if you would consider that in your age group, but I just wanted to say: You are not alone! :) I was diagnosed with a rare form of Ovarian cancer (dysgerminoma), and I had surgery done last year to remove the tumor and one of my ovaries had to be removed as well, and then this year my cancer came back. I am currently undergoing chemotherapy. I completely agree with you, I think life is great! :) A saying that helps motivate me is that God never puts you through more than you can handle, and everything happens for a reason. If you ever want to talk I have a facebook and a cellphone, so I’m here! :) Congrats on your engagement! I’m so happy for you! :D
