Cancer is something that can change you forever. It affects every part of you, even the blood that your heart pumps throughout your body. Leukemia and Lymphoma are two cancers in your blood. Leukemia is a cancer that spreads fast, and it is hard to notice the symptoms. Lymphoma specifically affects your lymph nodes. The type of lymphoma always depends on the origins of the cancer cells.

Many people have been affected by these cancers including my sister Yesica. She is fighting Hodgkins Lymphoma Cancer. This type of cancer starts in the lymphatic system, which is what helps the immune system get rid of waste and fight infections. She is taking chemo therapy which is keeping the cancer cells from growing, dividing or creating more cells, but chemo also affects healthy cells. For example her hair, intestines, and skin cells. This is causing her to lose her hair, nausea, loss of appetite and much more.  But after all this pain, at the end of the day, she is still here. She has become the strongest person I have ever met. She has never once given up and she keeps her hopes up. So for anyone out there who has or is fighting cancer, don’t ever give up. This world needs you and you will overcome this!
