Hello,
My name is Stephanie and I'm 18. I have been recently diagnosed with having ALL leukemia...and I know I'll beat this thing till the end...with no relapses...(knock on wood). That is one of my biggest fears though I'd have to admit. I'm worried that one day when I have a family all this will come back and I'll have to live this all over again....I was kinda hoping for some support and maybe some stories and experiences by people who have been cancer free.... :O)

Hi Stephanie, I am a 2x childhood cancer survivor. Both times I was diagnosed as terminal. My second cancer was when I was in high school (bone cancer) and I was also told I would never walk again with aide..... well I am 34, cancer free and can walk on my own, You CAN beat this. Anytime you need talk feel free to email me. Carpe Diem! (seize the day)

My name is Trisha and I am 28years old. I was diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma at the age of 17. The Dr.'s gave me 3 months to live and said I would never have children. I've been cancer free for 8 years and have a heathy 6 year old daughter. If you would like to talk you can e-mail me at trishab@abs-link.com
