I wear many hats. I’m a soccer mom, a gymnastics mom, PTA mom, Girl Scout mom, not to mention a businesswoman. However, among those many hats (as it obviously shows), being mom comes first for me.
Recently, I became a cancer teen mom. A few days ago, my 15-year-old daughter, Ri, was diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma, Nodular sclerosis, Stage IIIA. This blog was initially created for the selfish reason of my catharsis and for hopefully getting information and input from people. This is dedicated to Ri’s cancer journey and Hodgkin Disease awareness. Hence, the Hodgegirl chronicles.
Just so you know, the cancer awareness color for Hodgkin is purple which is, incidentally, Ri’s favorite color.
Read about her story in How It All Began…
Note: For lack of terms, I just coined:
1. “cancer teen mom” (meaning: mom of a teen with cancer
2. “hodgegirl” (meaning: a girl with Hodgkin)
