My husband, Chris, is a cancer patient, diagnosed with stage 4 esophageal cancer in June, 2013. His cancer has metastasized to his liver, lymph nodes and lungs. It has also spread through and invaded every area of our lives.
Hello whoever may read this. This cancer deal is so new to me. I have not processed it all yet. Do you ever really 'process' it? I don't know. I am not sure what my physical health will be a year from now. A few months ago I never even thought of such things. No health issues at all. I was getting ready to ride in a 3 day, 180 mile bike trek. And then Wham- you have breast cancer and will be starting chemo in a week or so! So there it is.
Hello new to this. diagnosed this year with breast cancer. triple negative. having chemo now and will have surgery in November. No family history and very healthy otherwise.

My son (35) has recently undergone surgery for adenocarcino of the appendix. He had his appendix removed, part of his colon and part of his small intestine. His chemotherapy started last week and he also received the results of his PET scan. What was initially a Stage IIIC is now Stage 4.
As, like anyone else, when you receive this news, it is a total shock and of course it hits home when it is someone close to you. From what I am reading, cancer of the appendix is somewhat rare and I would be interested to hear if anyone else has dealt with this.
At the beginning of last week I delivered a hefty pile of papers to my GP's office. Whenever I have a test or procedure done I put her name down to receive the results, but that often doesn't happen. One reason why I obtain my own records (and scan them into my computer, with backups) is to let me correct whatever disconnects occur.
I slapped on a cover memo that said (with some changes made here for privacy):
