Touching

‘We said ‘I love you’ at 13. He didn’t care I wore a wig. He found me broken and slowly put the pieces back together.’ Woman with Hodgkins lymphoma falls back in love with childhood crush, conceives after infertility predictions

“I remember chunks of hair falling onto my pillow. My body transformed. It took a while to look in the mirror and see my naked face with no eyebrows, yellow eyes. Sometimes I wondered if I’d ever feel better.

One side effect of chemo? Infertility.”
