Janice O'Donnell watched the number on her screen climb and climb and climb. And when she couldn't watch any more, there were text messages from friends asking if she was watching. By the end of the day, close to $50,000 had poured in through the Chive Charities campaign set up to benefit her 2-year-old-daughter, Addyson, who was born with spina bifida. "I basically spent the entire day crying," O'Donnell said. She had expected maybe a couple thousand dollars, at the most.

Q: Our 25-year-old son had been perfectly well but went to our family doctor because of enlarged lymph glands in his neck. A diagnosis of Hodgkin's disease was made by examining one of the glands after its removal. We were shocked and understand that Hodgkin's disease is a form of cancer. We would like to know our son's chances of being cured.A: Hodgkin's disease belongs to a group of lymphatic tissue growths, or neoplasms, collectively called the malignant lymphomas. Specific findings during the microscopic examination of tissue distinguishes Hodgkin's disease from other types of lymphomas, termed non-Hodgkin's lymphomas, which are more common and generally more cancerous.

Will Adams, freshman basketball player at Towson University, could be mad at the world about all the misfortune life dumped at his Philadelphia doorstep. There was the woman, his birth mother, who abandoned him to a series of foster homes at 3. There was the hit-and-run driver, racing through a yellow light, who dragged him and his bike a full city block, leaving Adams with compound fractures in both legs at 9. There was the cancer that ate away at his athlete's body for months before anyone knew, devouring his basketball dream when he was 18. It was as if he had a personal curse writing the storyline of his life.

Q: My brother was recently told that he has Hodgkin's disease. I would appreciate more information on this disease and how it is treated.A: Hodgkin's disease is a type of lymphoma (malignant tumors of the lymphatic system) that includes lymph nodes and the spleen. Hodgkin's disease accounts for about one in 100 cancers in this country, and most commonly occurs in people between the ages of 15 and 35, or older than 50.

Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, the cancer that struck King Hussein of Jordan, comes in many forms. While the prognosis varies significantly according to the type, any form can act unpredictably.Some such cancers wax and wane over years. Many people live for decades, hardly bothered by their lymphoma. Some may not need treatment for long periods.Many others, like the king, develop a form that is highly aggressive and succumb swiftly, even after they have an apparently successful bone marrow transplant and other powerful but risky therapies.

Joe Breschi and Jeff Tambroni haven't actually spoken in the past couple of months, communicating only through a couple of phone messages, filled with words of encouragement and support. But the respective coaches of Ohio State and Cornell, the first two teams to earn their conference's automatic bids to the NCAA tournament, both talked about an emotional -- and painful -- bond that has tied the programs together. A little more than two months ago, Michael Breschi, the 3-year-old son of the Buckeyes' coach, was hit by a sport utility vehicle in the parking lot of his preschool in Clintonville, Ohio.

Q: I know a cholesterol level less than 200 is desirable in adults, but how about teen-agers? My son has a cholesterol level of 185. Is that OK for a 16-year-old?A: A panel examining blood cholesterol levels in children and adolescents, has proposed a cholesterol less than 170 is desirable, a cholesterol of 200 or greater is high, and those in between are borderline. Because your son's cholesterol is borderline, the panel would recommend he have a second cholesterol test. If that value is also borderline or high, he should have further tests for triglycerides and HDL cholesterol after an overnight fast to determine whether the "bad" LDL cholesterol is elevated.
