      Wow 1954,...your mom is amazing!  This is so promising to hear. We have a group on facebook and can only get back to 1971 and realize a lot of us are UK / english desent.  Can you join us on facebook under hodgkins late reprussions group ?  What problems from Radiation or is it age related ?   Was it a very local tumor, maybe in neck ?  Thanks Scott

          We are the lucky ones, there was a treatment found for our generation. One generation Before us they died. Look at the Mickey Mantle family HD curse, it hit each generation and skipped over mickey. Get your heart check ups and take medicine for it. Hang in there, we are the pioneers for a cure.

                    After Treatment

                    I am a 3 time cancer survivor,had lymphoma over 3 decades. Happy to be here. Had Hodgkins in 1985, got just chemo, then in 1992 had hodgkins again in same origin, got a little chemo and total nodal radiation. The bulk chest disease, should get both. Then in 2008 got NHL, non- hodgekins lymphoma large B-cell diffuse. I feel fine now. Any one still alive like me out there 28 years later ? Also any B-cell- diffuse NHL people in 2012 ?
