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.
