Elizabeth Thilmany’s Journey with Hodgkin lymphoma
Anxiously anticipating the start of classes, I am glad to be done with the month of roaming across the country and weeks of training for my position of RA. Shout-out to Amanda Baker who offered me the job and her perfect timing because the offer came...
In Keeping with the Tradition of Socks!
For the patients, survivors, supporters, medical staff, or for those on the search for fun-meaningful socks- look no further than baldsocks.com personally-designed socks. To start, I will be selling Hodgkin’s Lymphoma socks- these will be limited addition specifically designed for my diagnosis. The only purple design are named b(+) named after my blood type and attitude 😊. The second option is a sock with four different colored cancer ribbons- these are the four most common blood cancers (Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, Leukemia and Multiple Melanoma) and are named bloodsocks as they are all connected by blood. Beyond having more cancer merchandise in the market for more ribbons/diagnoses, having the four different colors represented on one sock has the potential for unity amongst the blood cancers. My hope is that this becomes a successful business premise, so I can expand to categorizing and uniting multiple groups of cancer diagnosis (so far I have brainstormed cancers impacting women, men and soft tissue (sarcoma)). Please feel free to comment with feedback and suggestions to help make this a successful business.
