Adventures of a 32-year-old Cancer Veteran

But You Look Great Welcome

I’m Nora Feely, and I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma on March 1st, 2018 (18 months after this photo was taken & 12 weeks before I finished grad school). I’ve been telling the internet about it ever since–now in remission and figuring out my new normal. I am a writer, trained social worker (with a focus on trauma), and forever henchwoman for various social justice fights. Midwesterner at heart (STL & Chicago) and currently live on the East Coast with my husband and tiny, sassy dog.

    Thanks for the update. I really am so sorry you have to go through this. But I do feel very confident that you will do great. Glad you are getting started with the immunotherapy. Terri and I send our love and best wishes.

    That sounds scary. I’m thinking of you. Can I also just say fighting cancer in the trump era ruins like every movie. Even action movies become emotional rollercoasters of the beautiful struggle. Maybe just watch Broad City?

    • I’ve been rewatching Parks and Rec daily, but I’ll add Broad City as next on the list! Thanks Lindsey!
