An Interview with a Young Cancer Survivor

Cody Delaney

Abstract


In this interview, I talk with a young college student about his experience with Hodgkin's lymphoma, including how it impacted his personal life, his treatments, how it felt to be diagnosed, etc. I end with a short statement on what I learned from the interview and how I believe therapy consisting of discussion similar to this interview is paramount to cancer treatment. In a world of pills, radiation, and surgery, sometimes all patients really need is for someone to listen.

Keywords
