My son Josh and I at Krissy's wedding

My daughter's wedding, one week before I found the lump.

This is my husband and I on September 13, 2008 at my daughter's wedding. It was seven days later that I found the lump and my life was changed forever!

My cancer story

I was working in Las Vegas when I got fever the 3rd time in 1 month.
On the third time it came with a pain in the right side of my belly.
After a CAT scan I was sent to the hospital for appendix removal (8/13). The sugery was not so difficult and I was back on my feet the next day.
Upon the removal the doctor saw a strange yellowish color in the appendix and colon.
The biopsy came back positive for cancer. I had a 1.8cm tumor in the appendix.
I stayed 5 days in the hospital because it wasn't a laprascopic surgery.
The total cost for the insurance was 39,800USD.
I was told that I will have to have a colon reduction surgery. Since I don't have any family in Vegas, I flew to Miami to be with some family.

Esthesionueroblastoma

In October 2007, while undergoing a routine surgical procedure to remove a nasal polyp that had obstructed my right sinus, I bled out and the procedure had to be halted. This wasnt a typical Polyup, and once my ENT figured out how to stop the bleeding, he continued the procedure and removed the polyup. Biopsi was benign. I was relieved and ready to get on with my life. Three months later my headaches returned, along with the headaches came nosebleeds from the right side of my nose that lasted 15 - 20 minutes. It was like a red river, a never ending flow that left me tired and confused.

The staff looks at me with great puppy dog eyes expressing their sorrow. "You have cancer."
So, I'm thinking, just give me whatever medication I need and fix it. No need for the sorrowful, quiet stares.
