“You have stage two unfavorable Hodgkin’s lymphoma.”
Those were the words Staff Sgt. Teresa Monteon heard her doctor say on October 19, 2015. The weight of those words hit her hard and she cried.
“I was scared,” said Monteon. “My whole world just shifted. I was so excited to come to Travis and work in the intensive care unit. It was a great chance for me to be a medic and I was looking forward to testing my skills and facing new challenges. When the doctor said that, I felt like my whole world was pulled from me.”
