Sophie Broere



Sophie Broere [Netherlands]

In 1997 I was diagnosed for Hodgkins lymphoma, at the age of 17. My treatment was chemo and radiation therapy, seven months long. Five years earlier my brother had also Hodgkins, so I knew was it was all about. Now we are both fine. He is a skiing teacher and I become a child psychologist in next year. 

The side effects we have are not very serious, I think. My lungs are not as strong as they were, and my bother has concentration problems, but he can handle that. 

I have been involved in the Dutch cancer organisation for 4 years.
