I have survived two stretches of infidelity on behalf of my WH, and I just barely made it through with my sanity. Now two weeks after my beautiful daughter marries, she becomes deathly ill and is diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma. Why, why?

Please pray for her. Please add her to your prayer chain. She needs all the positive thoughts coming her way as possible in the upcoming weeks as she continues to battle the horrible pain she has been in and the Chemotherapy yet to come. Her name is Randi. Picture her here as you pray for her survival.
Thank you so much!

Praying for her. My then-teenage niece fought a long, two year battle with cancer - and she won! So happy thoughts and good vibes from your neighbor state to the South.

Chemo is a real pain. Books, video games and if she can laugh, comedy shows. There's something about laughter that makes the immune system kick back in.

My friend beat that 3 years ago. Sending prayers to your beautiful girl.

Oh I am so sorry! My dd just got married and I cannot fathom a worse way to begin a new life.

Prayers being sent for healing, patience, and guidance as you all navigate this course.

Oh Once, I'm so sorry. What a beautiful girl.

I will keep her in my thoughts and picture her healthy and whole again.

Randi is lovely, and will be in my prayers. She can win this battle--she will. But damn, life is unfair---and needs to stop lobbing balls at your head.

Millions of hugs to you.

Dear Once,
23 years ago this month, my exh was diagnosed with Hodgkins. He was given a 20% chance of living.... and after 10 mos of grueling chemo, he made it!
If you need a rainbow in this, Hodgkins is very treatable. .
Your beautiful daughter will get through this with prayer, laughter, love and support from her family.
Be good to yourself and your son in law, being a caregiver is hard work!
My kids were 5 and 8 at the time, I was terrified. That was the beginning of so many painful journeys for us, but we all made it.
Blessings to your baby girl, hopefully this is a distant memory in her lifetime!

Adding prayers. Also have a friend that beat this!

Prayers are heading your way right now.

As a fellow mom with a beautiful daughter, I can only imagine the immense worry and pain you are going through.
As a medical professional I want to assure you that even though she has a rough road ahead, this is totally treatable, and beatable.
Keep positive, and strong. You have the power of 40K people pulling for you here.

(((and strength))))

Also----If you work, and are planning on being a support for her, driving, helping at home etc. please please please get FMLA paperwork filled out sooner than later. This will help you and protect you should need to drop everything and be at her side.

What a lovely picture. I will keep her close in my thoughts as she fights this battle.

Prayers of healing for your beautiful DD.

Prayers of strength to you and her new H. Caring for a patient with cancer can be almost as grueling as the treatments are for the patient.

I don't know how much day to day care you'll be involved with but if you want any hints, tips or just want a shoulder to lean on you can PM me. I just went thru non-Hodgkins lymphoma with FWSO. He was in treatment for 3 years. He won his battle and I know your DD will too.

ETA: clarification

Sending prayers for your daughter and her doctors.

Thank you everyone for your prayers and support, they are greatly appreciated. Final diagnosis from Randi's Oncologist today - Stage III Hodgkin Lymphoma, nodular sclerosis type. Chemo begins on Wednesday and will continue every two weeks for the next 4 - 6 months.
Our family is banding together for support and have already begun planning teams for an upcoming Race for the Cure.

We're in this one for all and all for one.

SoVerySadNow posted 8/1/2014 14:19 PM

Prayers from me too.

Kajem posted 8/2/2014 19:36 PM

Adding Randi to my prayer group.

And sending strength to your family.
