On the one hand facing this kind of challenge makes me even more committed to enjoy retirement before it is too late. On the other hand I worry about the financial implications on our budget.
Any advice from others that have faced a similar dilemma?

Hi, I'm so sorry to hear of your diagnosis, but I know a couple of people who have had Hodgkin's lymphoma and are now cured.
How much do you have in your budget for healthcare. You can look at the ACA policies available to you and see if you can cover the monthly premium plus the out of pocket maximum. That would be the most you would pay under current programs. If you want to be cautious you could bump those numbers up by 10% (or whatever you are comfortable with).
Best of luck with your treatments and please keep us posted.
