I was diagnosed with Lymphoma a few days after this picture. As you can see the bump in my neck was barely noticeable to the point where my family, friends, and even myself didn’t see it. My ex boyfriend, who I had not seen in 7 months, asked me if my neck was swollen. To me, it didn't feel swollen and it didn’t hurt so I looked in the mirror and still barely noticed it. I had absolutely no symptoms and felt completely normal-worked out everyday, ate properly, no sickness or health issues, and EVERY blood test came back NORMAL, including the blood test for cancer was NEGATIVE. This just explains how healthy I really was despite the one bad cell, and how random this could appear in anyone.After visiting top-ranked research hospitals, Mayo Clinic and Moffitt, I finally accepted the fact that I did nothing to cause this.It isnt hereditary,my lifestyle, nor was I born w/ it(In fact, I’m the first in my family to ever be diagnosed with cancer)From the biopsy of the lymph node, the doctors were able to identify that the only link I had to Lymphoma was recently having mono.Before I was diagnosed, I was never sick and if I did get a cold it would only last for a day.And that’s why this was such a shock to my family.People assume that they’ll never get cancer because it doesn’t run in their family or they don’t do anything bad and that cancer patients were either unhealthy,didn’t exercise,always sick or had bad habits before that caused their cancer- however, I’m living proof that that’s not true at all and even the healthiest people can develop it.Cancer doesn’t care,it’ll develop wherever it wants, whenever it wants, no matter who you are or what you do to stay healthy. After 4 treatments of chemo, I’m incredibly happy to announce that I’ve beat cancer at age 21 and will start radiation for 24 days to make sure the devil doesn’t return. It’s been 2 days since my scans came back clear and I’m already back to running, and working out like I wasn’t just fighting for my life a week ago. To god,thank you for watching over me and giving me strength.I understand that I should have lost all my hair after the 1st treatment but because of you & the cold cap (cont. in comments)
