I was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma in 1981, I was 10 months old and it was in my neck. It went away when I was 3 years old.I went through whole head radiation , chemo and cobalt treatment. I had two surgeries because the first specimen was lost. I had a spinal fusion and a bone graph. I have have a laundry list of side effects Ive gone through such as hypothyroid, cholesterol , stunted growth,depression , anxiety, PTSD, a brain tumor , levoscoliosis , artheritis , thyroid noduals and Learning disabilities. Then theres the discrimination and so forth.
Author’s Note: I didn’t write Eight Billion Steps as a “How to beat cancer” book; however, it does contain some practical information that may help.

It was the summer of 1997 when I began to experience this constant pain in the back of my neck/head area. It late developed where I was spitting out blood. I visited my doctor and the ENT several times and nothing was found. Being situated on an island, I think the reason is that our doctors were unfamiliar with many things.
Hello. I am 52 years young.
I was a Sgt. in the Air Force assigned to POL and stationed at Hurlburt Field AFB. aka Eglin Air Force Field #9 Florida from 1966 to 1968. We had a wing of C-123 Providers stationed there and a number of them were equipped with tanks in the fuselage and spray nozzles mounted on the trailing edge of the wings. The nozzles dripped after coming in from a mission and droplets got onto my skin. When I asked crew members what it was, they informed me it was "insect spray" .
