peters fight...we never expected cancer and ....now we need to just fight and live longer! we can do it!!!! Hi, my name is Peter and im 7 years old. The doctor says I have Hodgkins Lymphoma.

Hello, My son Peter Tsatsaronis has just been diagnosed on May 11th with Hodgkins Lymphoma stage 2 B. This is a cancer to the lymphatic system.I found this bump on december 15th and took him to the doctor..treated with antibiotics and it was still there ....few months later,I finally was sent to a specialist! April 29th was the worst day of my life when the doctor said they suspect lymphoma.From there it has all moved so fast. had to quit my job due to the diagnosis and needing to go one hour away to get my son treated for this,as well as me having three other children who need us too. May 4th peter had a complete biopsy on the neck to remove one of the bad lymph nodes...pathology results came back May 11th that my son had Hodgkins Lymphoma...May 13 th peter had surgery to place the chemo port where they would deliver chemotherapy through...May14th peter had day 1 of chemo and had a reaction to one of the meds called ETOPOSIDE..throat closed up and had breathing difficulties.we went home after what seemed an eternity in the hospital on the 18th. we returned on the 21st (day 8 of chemo)for more chemo went home after then had  to return that evening to be readmitted through emergency department due to high fever and all his blood numbers dropped very low. we had a blood transfusion on this stay....Peter is such a fighter and we are so proud of him. This whole thing is so hard with having a husband who has M.S.(multiple sclerosis) and now to add to that we have our son peter who has cancer! why him ! why cant I take this away...Im supposed to be able to protect my children! My goal of this ,is to be able to get help to offset the medical expenses ,lodging,food , gas and anything else to help make my sons journey a smooth one. I thank you in advance for any support you give,i promise to keep you updated and you may also see updated pitures on FB under "peters fight". thank you and GOD BLESS YOU ALL! Michelle Tsatsaronis
