Hi, I am new to this..I am a twenty year survivor with hodgekins disease, I had 21/2 years of treatment.My Dad was diagnosed with breast 3 years later. Jump to the present, He now has bone, liver, and lung, I have been watching him fight this battle for 2 years, needless to say it has made old issue of my own surface, fear , feeling out of control, will this happen to me? I am not able to talk about this to my family, they do not understand the lifelong effect having had cancer has had. I love life and try to live it to its fullest but the undercurrent of cancer is always there, sometimes a blessing ,or curse. I want the feeling of immortality back, but know it is gone forever...
