Brittany Daniel Reveals Bout with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma

Posted Wednesday March 19, 2014 7:03 PM GMT

Nearly three years after her diagnosis, Brittany Daniel revealed that she's been battling non-Hodgkins lymphoma.

The "Game" actress shared her story with People, divulging that she discovered the cancer after experiencing extreme back pain, night sweats, and flu-like symptoms.

Revealing that it was already in stage IV, the 38-year-old actress remembers, "It happened so suddenly." She immediately began chemotherapy with plenty of support from her family.

Now cancer-free, Brittany explains she's speaking out now because, "I want to let people know it is absolutely possible to get through something like this. I want people to know they are not alone."
