My name is Alyssa and I am 20 years old. I had my first encounter with cancer when it took my best friend at age fifteen. When I was 19 I noticed a lump near my collar bone and decided I should go to the doctor. I was diagnosed later with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Thankfully, we caught it very early. I still did chemotherapy and radiation. I lost my hair and gained weight from the steroids. I just want to let the young people know, although it may seem like the end of the world sometimes, it’s not. Your hair will come back. That was something I had to come to terms with. The weight will come off. You just have to give yourself time to heal. I have been in remission for just about four months. I am starting the police academy next week. DO NOT LET THESE DISEASES GET YOU DOWN. Be brave. Enjoy life.
