PLANET CANCER
July 7, 2009

I was diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma when i was 28 years old. i noticed that i was the youngest person in the chemo suite 9 days out of 10. I couldnt relate to the older generation of people and they couldnt me. i have since been through two seperate other cancer diagnosis and only up until this year did i find planet cancer. it helps to have a place where your peers can respond to your questions and where the conversation is pertinent to your life as a young adult cancer survivor.
