Fighting Hodgkin’s Lymphoma – Story of Georgii
In 2017, I participated in “A Living Classic” competition, the winners of which were supposed to proceed to the next stage held in Artek. Just before my departure, I noticed that my body temperature was slightly elevated and from that point onwards it never returned to normal. On top of that, I also lost 8 kilograms without any apparent reason. After going through all the medical tests, I was hospitalized. However, seeing that it was a local South Osetian hospital and medicine is hardly our point of pride, the doctors couldn’t put a finger on what was going on with me. I was sent to Vladikavkaz for a CT scan, which revealed there were lumps in my lymph nodes. I was scheduled to leave for Artek in one week.
