My name is Viola I am a vibrant and energetic 47 year old I work in Healthcare and am the mother of two beautiful teenagers. I have recently been diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer of the Gallbladder and Ducts, also known as "Unresectable Gallbladder Cancer." I don't want Cancer to be an end for me.....I want it to be the Beginning.....It starts with a Battle which I win and I go on to share the fruits of victory with others who must fight the same fight----a battle they too can fight and win. My Mantra is Viva La Viola......If anyone can help this come to fruition or steer me in the direction of someone that can, I will be forever Greatful. In the meantime, I start Chemo on Wednesday....I will be receiving specifically Cisplatin and Gemcitabine. I live daily with pain from the pressure of tumors pushing against my organs. My cancer has metastasized to my liver, ovaries, uterus, lungs and I have a mass in my right pelvis.....Cancer has invaded my body and it is not welcome! I want to seize it and banish it....can anyone help? There is a proliferation of grim news I hear and continue to hear...I would cherish and love to hear from anyone that speaks of prosperity and wellness.......I have been given 12 months to live but my youngest graduates in 18 months and I celebrate my 50th in 2 years and 4 months......Cancer is a bully that I refuse to bow before.....can anyone help?
