Deborah’s Story (Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma)

For months I fought fatigue, no appetite and rashes. I begged my doctor to take me seriously. I started to develop lumps on my neck and face. This prompted me to go to the emergency room on New Year’s Day. After several tests and a biopsy, I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

Months of chemo, losing weight, losing my hair and praying for death, I am proud to say that I am in remission.

My dearest friends call me a warrior and I will continue to fight. ❤️
