“I’m heaven there won’t be any pain, confusion or loss. We will see clearly. So I embrace my moment of pain now and give Him praise in the midst of it. Because that’s an offering I’ll never have a chance to give Him in heaven. Every moment is an opportunity to give god something in worship.”

The Journey

 abby hodgkin lymphoma survivor journey

“I’m a doctor, wife, mother of at that time a 1-year-old baby, in my first year of residency working 90H a week – found a giant hard lump on the lower right side of my neck and for a CT which showed a large mass there and in my chest. Did 6 months of chemo while still working and was cured only to have a relapse 2 months after finishing chemo where I was sent to MD Anderson and several pathologists couldn’t figure out why my cancer was back as but finally, they all concluded that I was cancer free and didn’t need any more chemo.”

Motivation to fight cancer

“Why give up? Why stay upset, why be anything but happy. Otherwise, you’re miserable and so is everyone else “

Biggest hindrance

“Nausea, people thinking I wasn’t going through hell just because I had a smile on the outside and kept working through it all.”

“God no matter what is still GOOD. We are all mortal, and having the blessing to have the time to encounter your own mortality is a gift not everyone gets. Enjoy your life, your family, tell them you love them, buy the shoes, sing out loud. Cancer sucks but there must be good to come from it. Tell your story.”
