imageCathrin - GODSPEED DEAR BROTHER, DEAR SISTER  I came here about a year ago for comfort and to support those living with cancer and those caring for others with cancer.  This was because one of my brothers has non-hogkins lymphoma.  He is doing well and caring for himself best he can.  BUT....

imageMichele - New to this site    I have Fibromyalgia so pain is nothing new to me.  I flew from Arizona to Florida the end of May to go on a cruise & ended up falling asleep on my tray table.  I noticed low back, hip & butt cheek pain.  I thought it was due to the long flight & awkward position I had been in.  Once I got back home the pain got worse to the point I was limping.  I went to pain management and …More…

imageMichele - Will You Bury Me?  I’ve been thinking a lot lately about a funeral. You know, the one I would like to have? Yeah, that one.

imageKathy - It's been a Rough 3 weeks  As I wrote in my last post, Rick has been having a lot more pain.  He does not tolerate pain medication well, or any medication for that.  The nausea and vomiting are the worst.  I really appreciate all the suggestions. We had a visit with his Oncologist about the vomiting and pain and he changed his medication.  He put him on a Fentanyl patch and gave us Dalaudid for break through pain.  He told me to give the Dalaudid every three hours. …More…

imageLaura - A new butt pain  I have not posted in awhile. I finished my recent PET witth a diagnosis of original tumor site is still showing glucose uptake at 8 months out , but not as much as at 3 months out. The rad/onc feels it could be just chronic inflammation. I had an additional two weeks of radiation, due to an extended time in the hospital during treatment. At my latest DRE, no tumor was felt although I have a reoccurring anal fissure. I have …More…

imageJeanne - Betty yet another fighter taken from us to soon  As I received the news of Betty's passing, I was so mad and sad at this disease.  I called a few other BFAC members to share the sad news.  Danean and I spent as much time with Betty as she could allow us to.  I will post a collage of pictures of Betty, Danean, Charity, Cherie and myself within a few days.  As I do receive info on when they will be having a celebration of her life, I will pass that …More…
