Cancer of unknown primary (CUP)

Hi everyone,

Diagnosed with Breast Cancer 12-10-2014

Here's my story:  In June 2011, I went for my yearly mammogram.  This time "something" showed up on my left breast.  I went back for another closer scan and it turned out to be nothing.  In November 2011, my husband and I moved to another state to be closer to my mother.  I phoned my gyn asking him if I was okay since I wasn't sure when I would be seeing another gyn in this new state.  (He had been my gyn since I was 21 and now I was 63.  I had bee

I was in Minneapolis MN. and came across the park downtown, There's 24 parks across North America 2 in Canada and 22 in the United States.http://blochcancer.org/about/cancer-survivors-parks/

The link will explain what the park means to anyone touched by cancer. I was very impressed as how it came about and what it represents. Hope this may help someone who is looking to deal mentally with their journey.

My mother has always said to me, life is way to short to let the little things get in the way. Live life like its your last because you never know when God may call you home.

Where does the time go?

All my cancer sisters and brothers understand what I mean. Time is so very relative. I cling to an instantaneous moment of joy with a loved one but wonder where I spent all my time before cancer.

I don't think the surgeon who removed the gallbladder expected the pathoology report to come back as cancer. Anyway, the primary source of the cancer is gone. Maybe they caught it early, maybe not. Its all a waiting game.
