September is National Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Awareness Month. Actually, it is Lymphoma Awareness. Actually, it is Blood Cancer Awareness Month of which includes both lymphoma and leukemia.
I am a 25 year survivor of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The diagnostics and treatments that I was exposed to decades ago are rarely if ever used because of progress. There is still much more to do in finding a 100% cure, and a safer cure as well.
Last September, I challenged myself to write 30 posts in the 30 days of September, pertaining to Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. I have included stories of other patients and survivors besides myself, such as Stephanie and Jeff. I wrote inspirational stories of profound loss for Michael and Jennifer.
This month, I would like to do the same challenge again. And this time, I would like to include even more stories of other survivors. If you would like to share your story on “Paul’s Heart,” please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . Personal stories on this blog average 700 views and for those who want to help make a difference in this fight, your story is one way to do it.
“As I continue down the road of remission, I will keep looking in my rear view mirror to make sure that you are still following me. And if you are not on that road just yet, hurry up. Once you get on that highway, it’s a great ride.”
Thanks for reading.
