Resources & Blogs

Here is a fascinating video that shows how cancer cells behave different from healthy ones:

The Mayo Clinic has some great information on Hodgkin's Lymphoma and many other aliments.  It's the website I trust the most when doing medical research!

Some great blogs to check out:
Life Unexpected - This blog is very similar to mine!  This young woman had 8 rounds or chemo and 17 radiation treatments.  She's positive and upbeat and includes a ton of great information on her side effects, experiences, feelings, etc.  Great read!
Booby and the Beast - this woman is battling breast cancer, but she is well-spoken and has a great attitude!
Lil Blue Boo: The Cancer Chronicles - this woman was a blogger pre-cancer, and continued blogging throughout her cancer journey.  She is hilarious and another positive, inspiring person.

Supporting Cancer Research
"Cancer affects everyone, and it's up to all of us to support the important research that can one day make a much sought-after cure a reality." 
-Angie Harmon

Cancer treatment has come SO far in the last 50 years thanks to extensive research and the support of many programs and foundations out there.  If you would like to help find a cure for cancer, please check out the links below and consider supporting a cause - these are dedicated specifically to lymphoma research and patient/family support, but please consider supporting ANY organization that is contributing to finding the cure to cancer!

If you know me well, you know that I am a HUGE Pittsburgh Penguins hockey fan.  Former Penguins player (and Hodgkin's Lymphoma survivor) Mario Lemieux has a wonderful foundation that supports cancer research, specifically lymphoma and leukemia.  Click here.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has an Indiana chapter that not only supports cancer research, but also provides support groups and financial assistance to those fighting the disease.  They have many events throughout the year to raise funds.  Click here.
