Young Advocates Spreading Awareness

Check out this high school project our Diamond-side cousin, Halle, and her class partner, put together to spread awareness of Hodgkin Lymphoma. I am so humbled that she wanted to make this her project focus and honored to have taken part. 

The American Cancer Society estimates there will be 9,290 people diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma in 2013 – a majority in the 18-40 age group. Compare this to an ACS-estimated 232,340 new cases of invasive breast cancer in 2013. As Halle and Vicky point out, Hodgkin Lymphoma is a fairly rare cancer, and I appreciate their efforts to educate and inform. 


  1. What a wonderful tribute to not only to you Karin but spreading information for all the world to learn about this cancer. This is a great video and your cousins did a marvelous job preparing it. I hope it sparks awareness in thousands of people. I also hope your are feeling good today!

  2. Really well done. On behalf of another lymphoma survivor please pass along my thanks to your cousin for helping to shed light on Hodgkins. By the way, you look great - and are such a wonderful spokesperson for the Hodgkins community...
