Hi my first thread and really I would like to give a little reassurence for anyone out there who has been diagnosed with Hodgkins's Disease - we call it Hodgkinsons Lymphoma in the U.K. At 21 my son was diagnosed with H. L. and the family were terrified - 21 my only child and cancer what could be worse. His tumour when the doctors finally got round to diagnosing him was six and a half centimeters and the cancer had wound it's way round his spinal chord. To cut a very long story short after 6 months chemo it got rid of a lot of the tumour but not all, and just before Christmas 2005 he had 3 months intensive radiation therapy on the tumour and also on the spinal chord. The day before his 24th birthday back in January this year and after 3 years of terrible worry we were finally told he was in remission. So my message to anyone who has it is - don't ever give up, fight it all the way, think positive thoughts, see the light at the end of the tunnel and head for it, I wish you the very best of luck, Joy. :)Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
