imageStephLoves - My Beautiful Mother is Now an Angel   After a 4 year battle with ovarian cancer my beautiful, loving, vibrant mother is now in heaven. She passed away on 9/9/2015 so peacefully and without pain. Her last words to my sister and I after using all of her might to put her arms around us were, "Don't worry about us. Don't worry about us." I know she had already crossed over and was with my father (the love of her life) and our other departed friends and family members. …More…

image1 Very Palpable Hit - Surgery Jan 30th 2016  I am back.... with that recurrence that had so been terrifying me the last few years.  Turned out it was a brain met.  After 4 months of headaches getting progressively worse, followed by losing controls of my legs, my family doc insisted I go to the ER and within a couple of hours I had been informed of an enormous tumour in my frontal lobe surrounded by tonnes of fluid.  I was hospitalized with medication for seizures and swelling, and they …More…

imageBarry - MIRACLE OF THE HEALING TREE  I wrote this song awhile back and wanted to share it. ALSO when I decided against treatment and never went to an Oncologist I got trememdous negative feedback from Family, Friends and Some Docs I knew. I eventually wrote a song about it called DON'T RAIN ON MY PARADE...it's at barrydbutler channel on youtube and one other to note is "BREAST CANCER, WOMEN AND THE MEN WHO LOVE THEM" Check them out. I'm feeling a bit better today but now it's my …More…

imageKathy - My Best Friend Rick Alden  I have tried to write this post for a week now, but just couldn't. And as I write this, its with tears flowing. My best friend and husband, Rick Alden, of 42 years passed away, January 23, from pancreatic cancer.  Rick never gave up the fight.  He chose to live each day and he did it with grace.  He knew he could not fight the disease, but he did not let it define who he was.  He had a goal …More…

imageThetimeisnow - We just passed the halfway point for chemotherapy!  After receiving my Neulasta injection yesterday, we officially passed the halfway point in my chemotherapy journey. What has been interesting for me is that so far, the experience has been all new and original, from one day to another and there hasn't been a rythm to this madness. Yes, I know that the transition from the first to second week is rough but it hasn't been exactly the same.  And again, there is some change coming up as I'll be …More…

imageBarry - A Day in my Life  Every day is a struggle even though I'm not on chemo. Very rare Nodal Marginal Zone NHL that is Indolent and non responsive to chemo until it becomes more aggressive. After doing a lot of research after my biopsy 29 months ago I decided to not go to an Oncologist right away if ever. I was stage 4 with lit up nodes in abdomen and spleen and groin and under arms and of course that neck...ugh I had a scare yesterday …More…

imageCindy - HRA  Just some info to use as you choose.  So I was having a lot of anal pain and doctors here cannot seem to say why. I took it upon myself to get an HRA and anal pap done. I had just had a regular anoscopy done a few weeks ago and she said she saw radiation Proctitis only but that I may have some ulceration causing the pain.  Results of the HRA was that in fact I had some new vessel …More…

imageCarly - February  This year February has 29 days which is a good thing for my friends daughter who's born on leap year!  For me this is the first time in my life where I'll be cutting out all alcohol willingly. Obviously I wasn't drinking while undergoing cancer treatment, but I sure enjoy a social cocktail when healthy and able.  I follow the BC Cancer Foundation on various social media feeds, which is how I came to know of this months fundraising called 'Lose …More…

imageCorky - Decisions made  So...after speaking with the chemo dr we have decided to get the PEG tube while we get the port for chemo.  PLUS you all were a huge part of the decision.  It's amazing how much information is out there, and I want to THANK YOU for posting and blogging about your experiences.  It truly has helped!  PET scan showed 'hot spot' on colon so while they are doing the peg n port they will also be able to do colonoscopy …More…

imageElaine - R-epoch  I got out of the hospital on Saturday. Today is Tuesday. Somewhere in there I lost 2 days of flu like symptoms or being run over by a truck. Either way I came out okay on this side of it thanks to my hubby. I suspect this will be the norm after the each of the next rounds....2 days of crashing down. Now I have one third of the regimen finished. I am tired and weak but I only have …More…
