imageKathleen - the start of the hair shed  Wednesday night after I took a shower I had more hair than normal fall out. Every since that day it's been coming out like the shedding of a golden retrievers coat. I don't care how much of a heads up your given that you'll lose your hair or how short you get it cut. Nothing prepares you for it continuously falling out at the faintest touch. I know it's just hair and it'll grow back but to experience it is …More…

imageCarlos - Hermit or homebody?  Today is the first day in a long time that I woke up with some pep.  I got up from the bed without my normal moaning, groaning, and limp to the bathroom.  Instead, I got right to the kitchen and made myself a bomb-ass breakfast (which is something I used to do almost every day before the big C hit us).  But while I appreciate this gift of energy today, I am not so sure I want to spend this …More…

imageFaydra - You've Got to be Kidding Me  Hey friends, I'm opening this up now flabbergasted that I haven't posted anything since June, the reason is because in July my grandmother fell and I moved in to help her out. She's perfectly healed and yet I'm still here. I decided I'm moving, I'm getting my own place. So in between that I've also decided my teeth needed to be fixed. Check out the fancy new teeth :) …More…

imageMiranda - The Not-So-Good "Good" Cancer  On August 18, 2014, I was diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer.  At first, as anyone facing a diagnosis of the sorts, I could not fully grasp the fact that I could possibly have cancer; I had just turned 20 in June, was very active, running 3 or so miles a day, and had absolutely no symptoms.  As the news got out about my diagnosis, more and more people were coming to me saying, “You know, thyroid cancer is really a good …More…

imageLauri - Negative scans!  Went to the clinic about one week ago and had a CT scan of my brain and torso and it turned out negative.  I also had an MRI yesterday and that was negative.  This makes me very happy, but I am still down.  I really have no energy to do anything, my spouse does most of the housekeeping (except I cleaned the bathroom before my parents came to visit), and I have no desire whatsoever to exercise.  And I don't …More…

imageLisa - Really.... but still blessed.  Got used to the lung scanxiety.....Got used to the synthroid for thyroidectomy. Just when I think nothing else can happen.....Sooooo, I'm getting ready for work on Sept 12th, just finished exercising with a 10lb weighted ball instead of my two mile bike ride when I trip over the ball, break the first two toes of my right foot.  No cast/boot needed according to ortho.  Just a special orthotic to stabilize foot....yeah! Can get back to work on 9/24/14. Fast forward to 9/22/14. Leave …More…

imageHeidi - Need prayers  This month is very hard for me and rewarding at the same time. For the world to celebrate Pinktober brings tears and smiles. As a survivor everyday is breast cancer awareness. Not everyone has been lucky enough to survive. But at the same time there's always that fear of reoccurence. Which brings me to why I need prayers. My sister in laws mom has battled breast cancer starting in 2002. She went into remission for 8 years I think and …More…
