Parotid Cancer and me.

I asked a doctor what the bony spot below my ear was, and was sent to a specialist. I could have a fine needle biopsy[I hate needles], or he could remove the tumor and then the lab would test it. I went through the first surgery in Feb. of 2007. He nicked something and my left eye didn't close right when I blinked. On June 12, 2007 Dr. Meyer at Mayo Clinic in MN operated and "got it all" including a couple lymph nodes. In May of 2009 I had a brow lift, as the muscles had drooped. Now my eye closes 99% better, and I am over two years towards being able to say "I beat it"!
My grandmother had a breast removed about 30+ years ago and finally died at age 104! You can beat it! CANCER is a word, that's all. The disease may get us, but not the word!
