I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in November after months of excruciating itching and ultimately swelling around my chest, neck, and face. It was eventually determined that blood was not flowing back to my heart properly because of the grapefruit-sized mass in my chest.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, I want to tell my story. In January, after a routine mammogram which lead to a diagnostic mammogram, ultrasound and needle biopsy (~1.5 years after my last mammo), I was told I had stage 0 DCIS.

Being diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer at the age of 31 is probably the most terrifying thing I'll ever experience.
I married the love of my life, Jim, in February 2014 and soon thereafter noticed that my belly was getting bigger and began experiencing abdominal pain. I thought it was due to all of the celebrating we had been doing and just being happily married.
Thank you Lemons of Love. When I was going through chemo in the beginning and came home to a box and not knowing who sent it really made me feel good.
