    On December 22, 2010, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. I’m 14 years old and I’m in 8th grade. I started my first chemo treatment on December 29, 2010. I didn’t think it was so bad, I just had to pee a lot so my bladder didn’t get eaten by Acid! The following week, I received a second treatment of a few other drugs, which made me throw up, but only once. I start my secondt next Wednesday, and I’m kinda worried it won’t be so nice to me… I think I’m starting to lose my hair, but I’m getting a wig to wear. Truth be told, I’m not too concerned about it. When my hair comes out, it comes out. Its not your hair that makes you who you are, its your persTnality! T
