My family, friends and I are coming together to raise money in my fight against Hodgkins Lymphoma. We all would appreciate the support! I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, a form of cancer, on March 14,2014. I’m a 19 year old daughter,sister,friend and student at UNC- Greensboro, majoring in Public Health. I aspire to help people and become a nurse in my future. I have a great relationship with my family and friends and cancer has come as a shock to all of us this year. My family and I have already gone through the loss of my Dad to cancer a few years ago, and the financial burden it created. I have met with an oncologist that has advised me to undergo chemotherapy very soon for months to come. Before chemotherapy, I will have to meet with a fertility treatment doctor to harvest and freeze my eggs.Chemotherapy drugs can be harmful to my body, and can potentially cause infertility at a young age. Therefore, I will need to undergo this costly procedure. I have already accumulated costs including appointments with doctors, blood work, CT scans,a biopsy, and a PET scan before treatment starts. I will also undergo surgery to insert a port for easier access to chemo medicine. My family and I have created this account as a place to donate funds to help with the cost of treatment and debt brought on by my diagnosis. Mark 11:22-24 When I pray, I believe I receive.
