My Surprise Find.


Hi, I'm Jess and this is my story I guess.

It started after a morning shower before work and just walking past the mirror I noticed that my left side of my neck looked bigger than my right. I was worried, but shrugged it off because of the lack of pain. The next week followed with an intense flu so I just disregarded the growth and kept working and left it for a whole month before my mum picked it up and told me to see a doctor.

That's when the word 'Lymphoma' was dropped to me. My partner looked shattered, my doctors panicked after learning it'd been present for a month already. After a whole month of testing, I was given the diagnosis of Hodgkins Lymphoma.

I haven't started my treatment yet, but I've been told I'm looking at around 6-12 months of treatment.
