It all started with Darcey being tired all the time as well as developing different health problems. Darcey then had an allergic reaction and her tongue swelled up. The emergency room doctor noticed she had swollen lymph nodes in her neck and that it had not been picked up in a previous CT scan from 2 years earlier. Darcey followed up with my family doctor after her emergency room visit and she was sent to a surgeon. On April 20, 2020 Darcey had surgery on her neck to remove a lymph node and on May 1, 2020 she was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Darcey started chemotherapy on May 22, 2020 and have had 8 treatments.
In Darcey’s Words
The support of the Pink Wig Foundation means the world to me. It allowed me to take the focus off of financial matters and have a moment to breath and not worry about how I am going to survive financially. The support allowed me to continue healing and hopefully get a good night’s sleep without worry which has been hard to do.
