Welcome! I'm so happy you are doing well. You look beautiful in your picture. I just finished chemotherapy and not so patiently waiting to see something grow on my shiny head. I love hearing survivor stories like yours. They bring lots of hope.

Good morning everyone..I couldn't remember if i'd posted my story when returning back to Sparks or not so, here it goes again...
I was diagnosed with lymphoma in my spleen in 2009, after going through many CT scans and even being told by one dr. to go home and drink some Maalox. Thank God my family dr. didn't agree with him and sent me to another dr. where I had a bone marrow biopsy and was then diagnosed with the lymphoma. Funny thing is, I cried more about the thought of having to lose my hair then I did of having the disease itself. Mainly because, I can remember when my mother was going through the same thing and me telling her "mom it's only your hair". How stupid of a remark I'd made to her. Anyhow, I went through some chemotherapy and got my hair back. Then, in 2013, the lymphoma was back in my spleen again and I had to have my spleen removed. So far, I am doing great. For those that are going through cancer treatments, just hang in there and keep the faith!!!!
