Jessica Lynne DeCristofaro was twenty-eight when she was diagnosed with Stage IV B Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. After receiving her diagnosis and leaving the hospital, she found that no real guidebook for cancer sufferers existed. So she resolved to create one.
Starting a blog, Lymphoma Barbie, to chronicle her own cancer journey, she was so touched by people’s responses that she expanded her writings into a book.
DeCristofaro, a graduate of the University of New Hampshire, lives in Miami, Florida, where she works as a pharmaceutical sales representative.
