Wow!!! Finally, someone else who may know a little bit about my journey.... I am a Thymoma with Myasthenia Gravis Survivor as of September 2007. My battle took 18 months of my life. If you have any questions, please let me know and I will try my best to answer them. If your fiance has completed their journey, I would like to know how they are doing.

Also, how old is your fiance? And what part of the body were the tumors at? Please respond as soon as possible as I am very excited to communicate with someone else that may understand this illness.

My personal email is sandysclown@hotmail.com.

I look forward to hearing from anyone who may have survived this cancer, or who is going through it now. As I feel I may have a lot of useful information to help others.

God Bless You!!

I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Thymoma in 2007. When the tumor was discovered it was the size of a softball connected to my lung, aorta, heart and even my voice box. I was given a 50/50 chance of survival. I was devistated. I feel that I have been to hell and back. I lost a job that I loved for 12 years because of the Cancer. I almost died on Christmas, 2007, but now I am cancer FREE. I still have checkups every 3 months. I would love to hear from survivors of Thymoma. My cancer was treated at Deaconess Hospital in Evansville, Indiana.
