Zoe's Story

I was having problems with my vision 2 and a half years previously and nothing was picked up, I argued my case and was referred to anothe hospital where I was offered an operation to get rid of what was behind my eye and take a biopsy, this was when I was diagnosed with high grade non Hodgkin’s lymphoma, having 3 children I was broken, I just thought that’s it I’m dying, I’m not going to see them grow up, especially when I was only hit with a 30-40% survival rate, I began matrix chemo very shortly after and am now waiting on my stem cell transplant, at the moment I feel well and am defying the odds.
