Brittany, a sweet teenager, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma after discovering a lump on her neck on Thanksgiving Day 2008. Originally diagnosed as an infection, Brittany was given antibiotics which did not reduce the size of the lump. After further tests, Brittany’s lymphoma was discovered, and she started chemotherapy and radiation. After 12 chemo treatments and 17 rounds of radiation, Brittany is in remission.
Brittany had an amazing time on her trip to New York City. She loved staying “right in the heart of the city,” and she had a fabulous time going to plays and sight-seeing. She enjoyed a day of pampering including a two hour spa treatment, manicure, pedicure, hair style and makeover. She also spent time aboard a dinner cruise ship where she saw the awesome skyline of The Big Apple!
