imageThomas56 - 33 month check up  This November will be the 3rd anniversary of the end of my treatment. I saw the radiation oncologist yesterday for my three-month check-up. In his words, ‘things look good, they look better than good.” He doesn’t even want to do another scan – which is perfectly fine with me. Needless to say I’m extremely happy. I have had some intermittent soreness and pain in the treatment area so I was mildly concerned. I have kind of always had it – …More…

imageKim - I Really HATE CANCER!!!  It's been awhile since I've been on here, and while I am doing good with treatment and have changed oncologist and treatment centers.

imageAmy - Statistics are Getting Me Down  I am very good at compartmentalizing my cancer. The majority of time, it is way, way back in my mind. I keep myself busy with my two daughters (2 and 5), work (I am a teacher), and the daily obligations of everyday life. It is not until I get low and start going to various reputable websites and start reading statistics of life expectancy that I feel lower than the lowest low.  I am sorry that I can't be more …More…
