I know this may be a long shot, to look for friends on here, but I would love to exchange stories and get to know other gay men or women who have dealt with cancer, are currently dealing with it, or have helped a loved out.
I am very scared about my upcoming stem cell transplant (SCT) in a couple of months and my tougher chemo treatment (R-ICE) that begins on Monday... I have already undergone ABVD (for Hodgkin's Lymphoma) R-CHOP (ineffective for my Diffuse Large B-Cell Non Hodgkin's lymphoma, for which I am beginning R-ICE in prep. for a SCT).
I have been in treatment since September 2010... It is turning out to be a very, very long journey. And even though I feel blessed to have family, friends and a loving partner, I often feel lonely because I don't know any folks who have undergone or are undergoing a similar experience.
Feel free to contact me, and tell me more about you... Location, age, relation to cancer, and anything else you might feel like sharing.
