Living Hopeful

Created February 16th, 2022, filed in All Cancer Types

I am 75 years old married 51 years so far. Have 4 children and 15 grandchildren. Cancer has been with me since 2017 . I have breast and liver cancer and it will be with me until I die. I love the care I receive every three weeks and know it is sustaining me. I would love to hear from others who are also carrying cancer for the rest of their life. My friends and family hold me up in prayer and I would love to pray for you. Signed HOPEFUL

I have what you call amyloidosis. I’m tried of being sick. I hope I see different in 2 months.

Hi, I'm Patricia S C.

Hopeful,

Good for you and your positiveness. God bless and keep you! I am a two-time breast cancer survivor. Last week the cancer returned in the bones. I hope to be able to continue hopeful and positive just like you!

Hi, I'm Craeh

My husband has hepatocellular carcinoma. He was diagnosed in August 2021 with a 9.4 cm tumor that eventually grew to 11.1 cm. and metastasized to his lungs and abdomen. He had two Y-90 embolization procedures last fall and since Nov 30th has been on tencentriq/avastin infusions through his port every three weeks. We are now very hopeful since his last CT scans showed the two tumors in his lungs are gone, one of the two in his abdomen is gone and the other is decreased in size. The large tumor in his liver has also significantly decreased in size. We have been together almost 45 years, have one son and three grandchildren. Something I recently read that was helpful to me: " Don’t let your mind wander into fears that God has not yet asked you to face."

Hi, I'm Hopeful

I’m still HOPEFUL Now my heart is in on the act . I have rabid afib . was in the hospital a few days and now on meds that are to help the heart. Was shocked to see how much they are.
My verse to cling too now is, Psalm 62:8 “Trust in Him at all times; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge to us.” Love hearing from all of you. We can pray for each other.

Hi, I'm Hopeful

Is having cancer lead to other problems? I am asking myself this question today as now I am retaining fluid, and have gained 8 pounds. With just gaining two since yesterday. My heart doctor told me to be taking a water pill which I am waiting to get at the pharmacy. My feet and legs have been swollen a few days now . This is all coming from my heart. My heart doctor has changed the meds that the hospital doctor had me on. and the cost will be a lot less so I am thankful for that and hopeful to start losing weight again. Of course having to cut out salt. I thought cutting out Sugar was shocking to see that it is in everything and now Salt is the same. I am shocked . Just not using my salt shaker will not really do it . Then keeping track of my weight each day and my blood pressure and heart rate. I believe I am my own nurse.
