Recently diagnosed with stage 2 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Cancer sucks & doesn’t define who you are
Hi guys! My names Ariel, I’m 18 years old and was recently diagnosed with stage 2 Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Cancer sucks. I just graduated high school and should be going to college, going out with friends, working… but I’m too sick or I’m in too much pain… getting treatment. My whole life I have had long hair and his last weekend I shaved it- it’s hard because you look at yourself in the mirror and as for me… I don’t see ME. My hair was a big part of me and a part of how I held onto my mom who passed away from cancer 10 years ago. Then you begin to think no one is going to want to date me… a cancer patient… a girl with no hair. But all of that isn’t true. The cancer doesn’t define who you are!! You are so much MORE. Hair or no hair you are beautiful, if people say otherwise should they even be apart of your life? Yes there are days where I want to flip my hair or run a marathon and then break down crying cuz I can’t but then I just draw on my bald head with a expo marker and dance around my room😜 make the best of thing
