Hi – I’m Kimberley and I will be getting my #legsout4lymphoma this March.
On the 11th March 2020 I was given the news that the lump I found on my neck two days prior was Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Cancer, the big C.
In shock and while a global pandemic took place my parents came to take care of me.
I had 12 chemo sessions over 6 months with my last being on 7th September. I have now been in full remission since November 2020. This honestly was one of the hardest experiences of my life, for me and my family.
Because of this, I will be getting my Legs Out for Lymphoma. To spread awareness, and help fund an amazing cause. Knowledge is power and having someone to call to help when you’ve been diagnosed, going through chemo and/or in recovery would be incredible. Makes this new world a little less scary.
2 years ago I walked for Cancer Research in the UK and didn’t quite make the 26 miles but I did manage 23 miles (unknowingly I had cancer at the time).
In 2022 I will be re-walking the 26 miles (42km from the 1st – 10th March). I will finish my walk a day before the 1 year anniversary of my diagnosis so it feels very right to come full circle, being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma to then walking in remission raising awareness and funds.
Although recovery is hard, you’re not exactly the person you were before chemo, but this walk is giving me something amazing to focus on, and to try and get back physically to the person I was before, minus the cancer, so thank you.
Thank you to everyone that has already donated
