Hi my name is Jasimine and I am 16. I am a Hodgkin’s Lymphoma survivor. I found out I had cancer in Feb of 08. I went through 9 rounds of chemo in 9 months on 3 different regiments. After the chemo they told me and my mom that the chemo had not worked, so they said I needed a stem cell transplant.
So I went to Oklahoma City and I was there for almost a month before they did the stem cell harvest. After a week they admitted me to the hospital and I did 3 full days of chemo. Then they did the transplant. I was in the hospital a total of 3 weeks and 1 day. I was supposed to be there for 4 to 6 months. so we went back to the doctor and they told me I needed to do radiation. I did radiation for 3 weeks every day after school.
So now I am doing better. And living almost normal.
