    Evaluating treatment options
    Added Jan 27, 2020

    I am going through Chemo right now for 4 cycles in FL. I used the Digicap for my forth treatment and everything went fine. I was able to stand the cold knowing that I probably wouldn’t lose my hair. Wrong. I followed all the instructions to a “T” and my hair all fell out on day 15. I had the rest shaved off. I would have kept paying the hi…

    From My Diagnosis To Being A Survivor

    What I've learned
    Added Jan 8, 2020

    My cancer journey starts out most likely the way many cancer victims start. There is nothing comparable to people hearing the terrible phrase “You have cancer”. I was numb for weeks, it seemed so surreal.

    When I was first diagnosed with uterine cancer, I purposed myself to learn about staging and treatment options. Secondly, I sought out o…

    Updated Aug 20, 2019

    In November 2015 I was diagnosed with Stage 4, Triple Positive, Invasive Ductal Metastatic Breast Cancer. I had a LOT of bone involvement, tumors in my liver and LOTS of lymph nodes. My PET scan looked like a Christmas Tree. I started my treatments with 10 rounds of radiation to a bone in my pelvis and a few vertebrae they were afraid would …

    When someone hears That I have breast cancer and had to have Mastectomy, I get that look then a comment “Men don’t get Breast Cancer”
    So then I have to give statics and reasoning and Stating Men Have Breasts too. At first saying you get the Yeah right laughter then are you serious? So I will pull up my shirt and show my scar. I get that EEeyouu…

  • Cancer - The Secret Change

    Living with cancer
    Added Jan 31, 2015
    This article, so very well written by a practicing oncologist, is superb! Dr. Salwitz truly captures the feelings that I (and probably thousands of other cancer patients) have. Cancer does suck! My cancer is rare. It grows slowly, but it grows. I do not “look like I have cancer.” I hear so often,“You really look great.” The problem is I …

    It is what it is. Might as well find some humor in your journey.

    Living with cancer
    Updated Oct 26, 2013

    I was diagnosed last February (2013) with stage IV lung cancer. A shock to me, needless to say, as a non-smoker. Unless of course you count those funny things I smoked back in college 40 years ago.

    Besides the support of family and friends, I have found keeping my sense of humor throughout my journey has been the best medicine, other than the…

    A Summary of My Chemo Experience

    What I've learned
    Added Jan 7, 2010

    This is a summary of the chemo treatment I survived. I have never experienced anything like this. Radiation, and even surgery, was a breeze in comparison:

    6 treatments, one every 21 days:

    - for each treatment, Brad and I were there 2.5 to 4 hours (always had the bloodwork and meeting with the doctor a day or 2 before treatment)

    - #2 …

    LISTEN TO YOUR BODY
    You’ve probably heard this before; however, it meant little to me until I was the one being told, " You have colorectal cancer." If you are experiencing something out of the ordinary, such as pain or discomfort that will not go away, call your doctor.
