Re: Recent Hodgkins Diagnosis

Hi Bobson,

Thank you so much for your post. Your timing was perfect. Yesterday my son found out that his recent PET scan revealed he has more involvement that the doctor originally thought and he needs to go in for a bone biopsy.

This really shattered him and he really fell apart. I showed him your post. I said to Robbie, "Look, this person has been clear for 39 years and is going strong".
This really helped him.

As it looks like you were 32 years old at the time and had a similar scenario as Robbie.

Today we go in for his staging. I hope the doctor can reassure him everything will be fine.

Thanks again!

Take care,

Michael
