13News Now Meteorologist Crystal Harper continues to update us on her cancer treatments.

Crystal has been fighting stage II Hodgkin's lymphoma since the end of May, and on Monday she had her 8th round of chemo out of 12 total.

She shared in her blog post about how number 8, "wasn't great."

It’s always hard to post the 'not happy' blog entries and I’m really not looking for sympathy, but I decided to write this because you’re all part of my journey now. Also, I truly hope this might help someone else who is currently going through chemo. 

Crystal came back to Virginia for a week at the end of August to surprise a local 9-year-old cancer survivor who had been sending Crystal support.
