Dermot Morgan's young comedian son battles cancer
After a recent diagnosis of Hodgkin's Lymphoma, Ben Morgan hopes to be able to laugh in the face of adversity in his new blog
I DECIDED to start writing a blog about my own life experiences, which at present revolve around my recent diagnosis of Nodular Sclerosing Hodgkin's Lymphoma (most likely stage 2 pending PET scan results).
On the flipside, this is one of the most curable forms of cancer known to man and also, I'm a stand-up comedian, so hopefully this writing won't be too grim or, at the very least, the grim bits will be made fun of to the point that we can laugh in the face of adversity.
The stigma surrounding the word "cancer" has, in my experience, been one of the most terrifying things about the disease.
