Hi I am 17 and I am a daddys girl. I have been my entire life and now it's starting to fall apart. Cancer runs in both sides of my family. My mom had it whn she was in her 20's and now my dad has this Hodgkins Lymphoma. He said a couple days ago he went into the doctor for a swollen lymph node under his arm and the tests came back as Hodgkins Lymphoma he said that it is really treatable but I have no clue what this cancer is and he doesn't either.. I'm really scared because he already has health issues and I don't want him to die. We had a bad past but we are at a spot that is great now and I can't lose him. I already lost my sister and 2 grandmas. Can anybody please help me learn and understand? I'm scared..
