Renae- Hodgkin's Lymphoma 4b

THE STORY:

I was offically diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma on April 20th, 2013, after spending eight days in the hospital after being tested for everything under the sun. It turns out I had had cancer for little over a year before they found it.

My friends and family had noticed something was wrong because I was constantly wasn't feeling good and was constantly tired. Just a few short weeks after being diagnosed I started chemo treatments. My Chemo treatments take most of the day, I am there from nine a.m to three or four in the afternoon.

One of the most horrifying things about this journey is loosing your hair. I am into fashion and beauty and so iy was very hard, not to mention physically painful, to loose my long blond hair. Though chemo has also really affected my teeth, I have toothaches and jaw aches quite often now. However one thing I am thankful for on this journey is my boyfriend Ronnie. He has been there for me every step of the way and he still finds me beatiful without hair. This expeirence has definitly taught me a lot about life and love.

Having cancer at my age has been so difficult because i had to drop out of college temporarly and i had to quit working so thats been hard because I dont have a source of income to pay my cell phone bill or medical bills or other things i need. Its also been hard because I turned 21 during my.treatment and so I did not get to follow through on my 21st birthday plans Ive had planned for years. Its also hard because I dont.feel like my age, because people my age are working, going to school, and going out and im not doing much of any of that.

I love beauty and fashion. I loved doing my hair and my makeup. I love going to the salon and now i love going to the spa too because it relaxes me which helps with my shingles and massages help with my tension headaches and my nerve pain. I also love shopping, baking, riding fourwheelers and snowmobiles
