Amber – Family Trip to Tennessee
My name is Amber and I am currently 22 years old. On January 4, 2018, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. When I received that unexpected phone call, I did not realize at the time how much it would affect my life. I was in shock. At the time, I was currently 33 weeks pregnant. The first thing that my diagnosis affected was the rest of my pregnancy and labor and delivery. I chose to trust the doctors and gave birth to my first child at 37 weeks pregnant.
Going on a trip would give my family and I the opportunity to take a break from the emotional and mental strains the diagnosis has caused. It would be an absolute blessing to be able to spend time together somewhere and make new memories in the midst of a difficult journey. I would love to go on a trip to Tennessee with my whole family. It would help us to feel a sense of “normalness” for a little while and to get away from cancer.
