Hodge-a-Palooza - Beantown 2008

Hard to believe that all the people below just finished kicking cancer's ass!


What the hell is a Hodge-a-Palooza?
Well, over the past 2 years I have been talking to other folks that have, or have had, Hodgkin's through an online message board.
Some time ago a couple that lives in Scotland decided to visit one of the girls that lives in Boston. The rest of us decided to crash the party. 
To be honest, Jenny and I did not know what to expect. It was like an internet first date x 30! Would we have to make up some lame reason to leave after we all first met? Not a chance. This was such a fun group to be around. Mostly a bunch of shit talkers and "Good Time Charlies" like me, so that worked out great. Already looking forward to the next meet up.
