My Message

On the evening of Saturday 10 October, I am taking part in Light the Night because I have fought blood cancer. At the end of November last year, I went to the doctors to get a lump on my neck checked. I was then sent to have an ultrasound and a core biopsy. Unfortunately, the biopsy results were inconclusive, and the ultrasound showed that there was defiantly something there. The ultrasound also showed that some lymph nodes on the other side of my neck looked weird. I was then referred to a surgeon who then performed a surgical biopsy. The results from this biopsy were also inconclusive but we did find out that I defiantly had a type of lymphoma. This meant that I could be referred to an oncologist which is a cancer doctor. My oncologist wanted the find out the exact type of lymphoma that I had in order for me to get the best treatment possible. So, I had another surgical biopsy and again the results were inconclusive, however the surgeon and my oncologist were pretty sure that it was Hodgkin’s lymphoma. In order for me to get my treatment of chemotherapy I had to have a port-a-cath put in which is a small chamber that sit just under your skin with a catheter which goes in a vein that is connected to your heart. While I had this device placed I also had another biopsy and this biopsy finally gave us the answers we needed. I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma stage 2ae. A few days later I started chemotherapy. I endured five cycles of chemotherapy which started at the start of my summer holidays. I had my hair cut short because it was going to fall out. The day before Christmas I had my head shaved. After my summer holidays I started school again. At the end of April I finally finished my treatment and my three month scans were clear. My next scans are at the end of October. Lymphoma along with leukaemia are two of the most common types of childhood cancer and are both blood cancers. It is estimated that 12, 681 people will be diagnosed with leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma in Australia this year. Cancer is not rare and the amount of people who are diagnosed each year is increasing. You never think that it will happen to you or someone you know but cancer doesn't discriminate. Funds raised through this event provide families facing blood cancer with the care needed to make it through every scary, uncertain time that follows a diagnosis. Donations help to fund lifesaving research that will help find a cure and better treatment for blood cancer. This research is saving lives right now as it continues to discover faster diagnostics and even better treatments for people with blood cancer. Please help me reach my goal and sponsor me to Light the Night.
