My name is Emily. I am a wife and mother of three boys. Early in my pregnancy with our third son I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. I started this blog to help keep family and friends current on updates and information, as well as to process my own thoughts and emotions, throughout the pregnancy, and it continues now that our son has been born.

On Tuesday, March 20, 2012, I found out that I was pregnant again, with a baby who became our youngest son, Stephen. On Friday, March 30, 2012, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The pregnancy and lymphoma affected each other over the course of gestation and cancer treatment–I started chemotherapy at seven months pregnant. I am by no means to first to travel this road, and for that I am thankful, but this is definitely a first for me! So, read on to join me on the journey.

    We just finished the Divine Mercy Novena for which the Lord promised extraordinary graces to the person and family for whom the Chaplet of Mercy is offered.
