There are so many kind people who want to make it easier for the next cancer warrior going through this tough time.

Why Share Your Story?

Journaling about your battle with cancer is a great way to relieve stress. We can let go of some things after writing them down. Also, I found it helpful to keep track of what treatments and doctors I saw and on what dates.

As a bonus, it helps someone else to read what you are going through. And it feels good to help people.

What is Your Cancer Story?

Everyones path is a little bit different but by sharing your story someone else may benefit from knowing they are not alone in this path.

imageUnsure - Well that went well (NOT)  As I mentioned in mjy last post, my treatment started today, Chemo/immune therapy. The day started OK, they took blood, talked to my oncologist, he told me he didn't have the report back yet on the new stains he had ordered last week on the biopsy sample, ok, no biggie. They they started the infusion. Benadryl first, then the anti-nausea. All well, cool. There might have been a 3rd "assesory" type item I honestly can;t remember. Then came the 2 … more…

imageUnsure - Back in treatment starting tomorrow  Well here's my follow up to my last post from last month. Yes, it's back. It's back, and it's nasty and aggressive. It's gone from stable scans at the end of last year, after those couple of "false alarms" from earlier in the year, to now it's all of a sudden in both lungs, middle of my chest, my adrenal glands, my left femur and my cervical spine. Yeah, when you say it that way it sounds bad. But the … more…

Get PICC line tomorrow and PET on Thursday then treatment starts on the 17th.  I am just ready to get it going so I have an idea of what it will be like.  Has anyone received a COVID vaccine prior or during their treatment?  I have 2 docs saying not to get it until after and 2 saying … more…

imageAngdb - New to the group  Good morning, I just found out last Tuesday that I have AC.  Now it is the waiting game; which I am not good at.  I wanted to ask if there was anything that you know now that you wish you knew prior to staging and chemoradiation therapy?  There is not a lot of information to research to ease my mind. All I know, is I do not need surgery, but will do chemoradiation.  Imaging is the end of this week and … more…

imageUnsure - Knew I was in trouble  Yeah, I knew I was in trouble when I did my virtual follow up to my latest scan. I was supposed to be seeing my oncologist's PA, but my oncologist came on instead. Just as a refresher, last June I was posting about an apparent set of false alarms. A PET done after the 1st set of scans that showed new abnormalities came back with nothing glowing brighter than a 2.8, apparent false alarm. Then after the next set that … more…
