imageNancy - Getting Prepared for treatment to begin  We knew that we would be starting radiation and chemotherapy but every day is another something that needs to be done first.  Two mornings of xrays and a deep cleaning from the dentist.  Tomorrow a colonoscopy to make sure the vague bright spot in the colon area that appeared when the PET scan was read isn't something else to worry about.  In the meanwhile we're waiting for the blood work to be analyzed so that they can decide which drug …More…

imageKathleen - In wait  So I had my consultation yesterday and if I get my picc line in this week I will start treatments (Yes I will not refer it as the C word) Monday. I guess the people who do the picc line are pretty booked with appointments but they are going to try and get me in this week since they know the oncologist wants to start Monday. I have to wait for them to call so that's annoying. :) I'm a …More…

imageJudy - One year follow up  I am constantly reminded about how far I've come in a year. I had such a great weekend.  The Fall colour was absolutely stunning this past weekend and after a summer that was less then stellar weather wise, it was great to get out and enjoy summer like temperatures.  We went for a 2 hour hike which covered about 15 km around a perfectly glass lake to a big summit that over looked the fall colour of the forest.  It …More…

imageKelly - Still at it - an update  I haven't posted in awhile because I post about my situation on CaringBridge.org.  It's a way to keep my family and friends up to date with everything going on.  Unfortunately, it doesn't include anyone going through the same situation as me.  It can get lonely some time. Since I last posted, I have been on Cisplatin and 5-FU every three weeks for liver lesions.  After 2 cycles a CT scan showed that most of them had shrunk by 20-50%.  For the …More…

imageKathleen - Lets hope this works  I find out 9-29-14 when I begin Chemo treatments. I'm a little nervous but have great support and inspiration around me. I figured this website would be helpful and a good way to get support, advice and help from people who went through or are going through the same thing. I have no idea what to expect and that's the scariest thing but I'm going to try and stay positive. The (low doses) of Chemo they are using are: Bleomycin, …More…

imageLarissa - Year One meet year Ten....journal entry 9/28/14  It is here, September 28 2014 a day that I dreamed of and yet never hoped for.  Baby steps are all I ask on this journey, if I don’t ask for too much then I have a chance of seeing my hopes to fruition.  Day by day, minute by minute, second by second, I encourage people to take one breath at a time and then “BAM” we are on to the next goal in life. My most recent goal has been …More…
