I was diagnosed with Hairy Cell Leukemia in 2009 in the midst of the recession. It was a scary time fiscally and mentally. My children were old enough to see that something was wrong with me but young enough to not be able to quite grasp an explanation. This was a time of learning and recovery from a rare little known blood disorder/non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that I was told would be a chronic health issue for the rest of my life. The first treatment time was not so bad, the second time it came out of remission was 2013 , and again in 2019. I am currently recovering from my most recent chemo treatments. While manageable it sure slows me down ALOT! I think the hardest symptom to deal with for me is the brain fog. I have always relied heavily on my smarts and to have that taken away is pretty darn scary! Luckily I have a very committed team at my salon and they are picking up where I cannot function very well. I am working at rebuilding my strength and brain clarity and hope to be back to at least almost normal by summer! I have been fortunate to have the founder of Mend After in my chair at the salon and have been working with her to make my favorite Aveda products available for gift giving through this site. She encouraged me to reach out for help during this time for myself. It is hard to ask for help but she reminded me that people like to be able to help in some way when they feel powerless over what people close to them are going through. I also wanted to promote this site to everyone I know so they can help people in their lives when they are fighting their own cancer battles. It can be a hard road and it feels good to know that people are rooting for you along the way!
