We are beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel! I finished chemo in late October and started two weeks of radiation shortly thereafter. After finishing radiation, I had to wait a month for my first MRI technician salary so the radiation could work its way out of my system. On December 28th, I had my first follow up doctor’s appointment where they did blood work. Thankfully the results came back positive! My doctor gave me a clean bill of health! I have my first CT scan coming up in April and hopefully it will return the same positive results. This radiology salary will continue where I will have a doctor’s appointment every 3 months for the next 2 years and then I’ll go in every 6 months for the next 3 years. By then I hope to be in remission! I am so thankful for the outpouring of support I have received from everyone. Words cannot express my gratitude and thankfulness to all those around me. I appreciate everything you have done for me; it will never be forgotten.

During early April I was diagnosed with Stage 3 veterinarian salary a cancer which is also known as Hodgkin’s disease. It is a form of blood cancer, and unfortunately doctors do not know where or how it is formed. This obviously came as quite a shock to me as I have always been fairly healthy and the thought of having cancer at 25 was ridiculous. I feel lucky they caught this when we did, simply because there are no tell tale signs or symptoms for what I have. I went to the hospital mid-March for an unrelated issue, and surprising found there was computer engineer salary suspicious in a chest x-ray that was taken. The x-ray showed there was a mass in my chest and they needed to take a biopsy. It was simply a coincidence that the doctors happened to find the mass.
A couple weeks later I had a biopsy done on the mass. The doctors made an incision in my chest, separated a few of my upper ribs and took out a portion of the mass. When the ultrasound technician salary results came back and determined it was Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, I then had to undergo a bone marrow biopsy. This was the most painful test imaginable and something I hope to never have done again. After many more tests and getting pricked by more needles than I care to remember, we found out the mass is right in front of my heart and is the size of a lemon. There is also a doctor salary and smaller mass near my pancreas. The doctors have determines that the best course of action to be rid of the cancer is ABVD chemotherapy. After completing my first round of chemo I found it to be both physically and mentally difficult. I also realized how much support I will need from my family, so I have made the surgical technician salary to complete the next six months of treatment in North Carolina.
I never imagined that medical coding education like this could be so life changing but there is really no other way to describe it. One minute I am finishing my degree at the University of Virginia, starting to pursue a career in either government work or with in the military; and the next minute I am spending every moment trying to careers in the medical field the cancer that has invaded my body and deal with the financial burden that goes with it.
To further complicate matters my insurance company just notified me that they will not be covering any more treatments, so all of the expenses will be out of pocket. As hard as it is for me to talk about this I now find myself in need of assistance to pay for the chemotherapy treatment. It is my hope that The Friends of medical technologist salary will help to relieve some of the financial burden so I can focus solely on getting well. So my friends and family if you are able to help me at this time The Friends of Joe Vide will accept your donation.
I know I can get through this rough time with your help. I will keep posting, throughout the process to let the medical terminology course know how I am progressing. I greatly appreciate all the support that I have and will receive through this process. Thank you all very much.
