imageAnn - Doctor WINS!!!  I am posting this ribbon, someone asked me what color it was, I had to search to find it, so I am sharing it, so we all have it. It's been a hectic week, yet I used the time to rest. My Drs. Office called at 3:30 today, Chemo has been approved! Treatment begins Monday at 9:15 am.  Who would have ever thought I would be so excited about doing chemo. I am ready to get this show on the road. My mission is to kick …More…

imageKaren - Here's to Health  One of my main goals currently is to get healthier as I mentioned in my previous blog. Now coming off of chemotherapy, radiation and all things cancer, this is not a fast track to health... by any means, but since I haven't been working yet, I work out at the gym twice a day 4 to 5 times a week. I do a cardio workout early in the day and then Ron and I meet at the gym after he is …More…

imageKaren - after surviving  I have been thinking about blogging about my cancer journey for awhile...I was diagnosed in April of 2016 with breast cancer... stage III initially then stage II after all testing was said and done. I underwent a lumpectomy in April of 2016 and a mastectomy in May of 2016. I will undergo reconstruction late in 2017 as I have to wait one year after radiation treatment to undergo reconstruction. At the time of reconstruction I have decided to have my …More…

imageAnn - Doctor vs Insurance co = No chemo  I was so excited to begin chemo on Monday. I get a call at 4:45pm Friday from my Drs office stating there has been a delay in the prior approval for my chemotherapy scheduled for 9:30am Monday. She was not too concerned and said she would follow up with them Sunday while she was in the office. She would call me and let me know what she found out, just in case, call the office before coming in on Monday. I …More…

imageTerry - My life has been turned upside down.  Admin posting this for Terry - I am sorry I have not been on here for a while. My life has been turned upside down. I had surgery on September 29th 2016. They put in a permeant ostomy bag. Well they couldn't find a bag that worked so for 2 weeks it either fell off or leaked. Due to their surgery I could only lay on my right side. I almost died twice due to infection throughout my body. I was …More…

imageCorky - Also....  So amazed at a little over a year on how he looks and how his speech sounds.  After a third of tongue removed and replaced, both sides of his neck surgerized... his jaw split open to get to the back of that nasty cancer... He looks GREAT!  Speech thrapy helped... Thought he would need more, but he is to where you can't even tell.  Swelling from surgeries,and inflammation from both radiation and surgeries have left some swollen cheeks and neck areas …More…

imagePati - Saw My Oncologist Today  I saw the "big cheese" today, the head of the breast cancer oncologists. We are still on track for targeted radiation therapy, not yet sure whether or not I will have any IV IG before (for my myasthenia gravis). I am having daily "fading" which makes it almost impossible to do much of anything physically. I have wanted to walk around the park with my hubby and walker (where the sidewalks are fairly even) but I have not had the …More…

imageBonnie - biopsy and results  I had my biopsy on January 10th.  My colorectal surgeon called and said the results were negative.... all normal tissue AND because it has been 2 years now......I only have to go to  see him every 6 months now!  Yahoo!  I was convinced that it was a recurrence.... but thanks to all of you, I continued to have hope. My prayers were answered. I pray for all of us daily!   My kids are even reading this blog these days.  Couldn't …More…

imageJana - NED in Nashville  Well I finally went to see my colorectal doctor in Nashville, TN.  Last April I got a blanket head to toe PET scan (ordered by my primary care) which showed "trace activity in the anal area" - the CR doc here in FL wanted to biopsy.  Not sure what he wanted to biopsy since he said the DRE and anal US were negative, but I said NO!  My sister was dying and I put this worry on the back burner. …More…
