Could each of you write the area or the town, and state you live in so we can get a feel for how spread out or close we are to one another? Would be a real shame if some of us live in the same town and don't know it.
Some of you have added your stage. GREAT IDEA! The year and month you were first diagnosed, if this is a recurrence, can help give others a heads up as to the seriosness of the situation, and to really encourage them to do as much as they can, in addition to their doctors' treatments, to stave off a recurrence.
Me--Stage, ah, well could be Stage lA or lllC as the doctor didn't do complete staging. This is NOT a recurrence for me but, I was first diagnosed February 27, 2008. Only treatments have been in the form of alternative therapies, both nutritional and lifestyle. Will be adding others such as visualization and other mind/body approaches in the coming year. Will continue these for the rest of my life.
Currently, Menominee, Michigan. Just across the river from Marinette, Wisconsin. First 18 years, Long Island and NYC. Then nearly forty years in California both north and south of San Francisco at varying periods, with a short stint in Pascagoula, Miss, Leesburg and Reston, VA.
Mostly I miss NYC.
