Krystyna’s Fight Like a Girl Story (Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma)

Lime RibbonWell, when i was 10 my grandma was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. It was a sad moment when we heard that because the doctors said that it couldn’t be treated. We gave her treatment anyway. After awhile the cancer was making her lose her hair so she wore hats all the time. Every time I would see her I would be like “I cannot believe that’s my grandma”. So after a couple years of her having cancer she got better but was still ill from the chemo. She now has trouble eating spicy foods and has some trouble hearing. From 2008 until now, she is still a survivor. I’m happy she is still alive and well. Sometimes I do wish it was me but I know I will get it soon because breast cancer does run in my family.
