Hi, my name is Gabrielle, I'm 17 years old, and I have Hodgkin's lymphoma
I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in June 2020. Since then, I’ve felt weak and tired most of the time. Being in lockdown on top of living with this disease, I sometimes feel very alone. Luckily, my four brothers and sisters and parents are with me! I am obliged to spend a lot of time at the hospital, but it’s not so bad; it helps me really appreciate the hard work the nurses do… especially since I plan to go in nursing! I also have plenty of time to imagine all the trips I want to take some day!
