In Sep of 2006 Krystal was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma and started Chemo which she got through beautifully and with almost no complications. After a few months she was cancer free and we thought done with cancer forever. Two years later in Nov of 2008, Krystal relapsed and chemo started again. This time she also needed radiation and stem cell harvesting. This time treatment was more aggressive than the first time and she had a lot more hospitalizations. But after several weeks of Chemo, numerous blood and platelet transfusions, scary allergic reactions, painful biopsies, mediport placement, x-rays, CT scans, PET scans, bone scans, super painful GCSF injections, double picc line placements, long days of stem cell harvesting, multiple ER visits and hospital stays, several radiation treatments, and countless pokes Krystal completed her treatment and was declared cancer free! In May of 2011 graduated from Cherokee Trail High School, which is quite the accomplishment after missing 2 years out of her academic career! After almost 5 years of being cancer free, Krystal relapsed for the 2nd time in Feb 2014. At this point she was taken off study and she was put on a treatment plan of 6 rounds of Brentuximab, 2nd Stem Cell Harvesting and a life saving Bone Marrow Transplant. This 3rd time around was the hardest for Baby Girl, she reacted to pretty much everything and anything they gave her. But by the Grace of God she got through it and is now again free from Cancer. Krystal is an amazing young lady and we are so blessed to have her as our daughter. We are so proud of our “Baby Girl”!!!
