My name is Chester. I am a Hodgkins Lymphoma cancer survior and an advocate for those like me. I was diagonosed with the disease at the age of 22 and battled it for a year. Over the course of that year I underwent ABVD chemotherapy, ICE chemotherapy, and ultimately, a stem cell transplant that has fortunately allowed me to be in remission until this very day.

Since this, I’ve dedicated myself to rebuilding the healthy body that has carried me through life. I’ve implemented a consistent gym schedule into my daily life, incorporated fruits and vegetables to my lunch and breakfast, and gave up many foods I deemed unhealthy. My daily exercise comes in the form of either running, calisthenics, or weight lifting. I also take 1 mile+ walks along West Haven boardwalk to refresh and clear my mind. It is a healthy habit that I value greatly.
