MY CANCER STORY - STAGE 4B HODGKINS LYMPHOMA  

 

Hi, I'm Charlotte May

Whilst I was enjoying my final year at London college of fashion, I discovered a lump on my left side near my breast. Being terrified of anything medical, I tried to ignore it, thinking it would eventually disappear, but more lumps appeared. As the lumps grew I was in constant pain, resulting in dropping out of university as I couldn’t keep up with the work, which was very upsetting for me.

Fighting through my anxiety and selective mutism, I finally managed to get the courage to go to the GP who referred me to the breast cancer clinic in St Albans. This was when things got really tough.

Anxiety and selective mutism took over my life and for a year, I was in and out of hospital trying to get a biopsy. Needles are my biggest phobia and I was unable to do this. Each appointment was with a different doctor and no one could understand my anxiety and panic attacks. So I would be sent home each time, knowing there was no help.

Through research, I discovered it was possible to get a biopsy under anesthesia and the doctors agreed this was the best path forward. During my biopsy, they discovered the lymph node was now the size of a golf ball and decided to remove it instead.

By this time, every lymph node was affected. Sitting down was extremely painful, due to lumps in the groin. I also suffered from night sweats, extreme itchiness, weight loss and fatigue. With the results in, we discovered it was stage 4b Hodgkin's lymphoma. I was then sent to the Macmillan Cancer center at UCLH, where things got a lot better!

At first, I panicked, cried and refused to have chemo but the doctors understood my needs and my lovely social worker Zoe from Young Lives Vs Cancer was there at every appointment for support. It was a long 6 months of having chemo every 2 weeks but somehow I made it!

The side effects from treatment were extremely difficult to deal with. You have no idea how to cope and a daunting amount of information booklets. Each day becomes torture. You can not eat, particular things can trigger nausea, constant pain, extreme fatigue, constipation and skin sores. When you are fighting cancer you don't always have the time or energy to research what can help.

After finishing treatment I went striaght into researching how I could create a company to help people cope with the side effects. This is how Comfort Crate was born!
