Here we meet 22 year old Claire Henderson who, after finding a lump in her groin in early 2007, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. As Claire tells her story, we learn about her daily routine in hospital, how she felt when she was diagnosed and the various procedures she has to go through, including regular temperature checks…when the machine decides to work! Claire talks about the side effects of treatment, including sickness, hair loss and tiredness, giving some good advice on how to stay positive, saying how important it is to keep in touch with friends and have as much fun as possible.
