To make my long story short, I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia back in when I was 16yrs old. Luckily, I was able to be treated by a great team full of knowledge, compassion and passion for their work. At that time, I went through a three year treatment with chemo. and radiations. Then after the first year of been in remission, I was diagnosed again with a Relapsed Leukemia. At that time I was 20yrs and just starting to catch up with my life.
The next step was to undergo an even more intense and painful treatment with chemo. and a bone marrow transplant. For sure, I wasn't going to let this terrible disease defeat me for the second time, and I decided to take all the risks and undergo any necessary pain or suffering in order to win the battle. But, this would not have been possible without the amazing support from my doctors, NURSES and specially my family who were always there to encourage and transmit their hope during excruciating moments.
I am a 56yr. old,overweight,white male with Breast Cancer. I am on a mission to spread the word about breast cancer in men. I know, I had a lump in my left breast since I was a young
teen. There is a condition called Gynecomastia, a button-like or disk-like growth under the
nipple,is common amoung teenage boys. Obesity may be another cause of breast cancer in men.
Men,and medical professionals like Doctors, need to learn how to do "self-breast exames" on
men and talk about lumps in their chest. Spread the word! If you know of someone or knew
someone like a grandfather,father,uncle or brother that has/had breast cancer,tell someone
I am still here!! That is a huge milestone when dealing with ovarian cancer ongoing. I hate to say I have attended way too many funerals for women I have met in this journey and continue to try to raise awareness.
July 23rd I was the first ovarian cancer patient to have an NK Cell transplant, this is similar to bone marrow or stem cell transplant but instead you get the natural killer cells of one of your childrens. Unfortunately my cancer grew and it has taken some time for me to get strong enough to do chemo again. I am scheduled to go back on Carboplatin as it maintained the cancer for 13 months before the transplant. I have to continue to get it in the hospital as I am allergic. I did tell them if I had more sick than well days I would stop. My oncology team understood and I believe Randy does too.
Hello out there. My 16 year old daughter was just diagnosed with cancer. We find out the results of the path report on Monday. I believe that her cancer is curable. But even if the path report is better or worse than I imagine, we both have been thrust into a new world that neither one of us wanted to travel to. I feel weird. I am looking at the welcome bar above, and I see that there are 8 members online right now. Is that in the whole world? there are only 8 members on line? My friends and family all are praying for us. A wonderful neighbor brought us a wonderful spaghetti dinner. My brother sat with me while my daughter was having surgery.
I was a previous smoker for 20 some years and quit in year 2000. Year 2007 I began coughing a dry cough. I went to Dr and they treated me for pneumonia. I kept going back to emergency with sudden chest pains. They finally did a ct scan and found a tumor on my left lung. It was staged IV. I began chemo and finished with 8 sessions. That was in June 2008. It is now September 2008, I've had chest pains and shortness of breath, and they see 2 enlarged lymph nodes on my right lung. It is close to pulmonary artery so my next visit will be to a pulmonologist. I don't want to have cancer aga
I went to hospital for high fever and infection March 2008,further test revealed that i had a tumor the size of plum stuck in the right lobe of the liver,and smaller tumor in the right adrenal gland, it had not metasised to any other location in the body. Chemo was started within two weeks and the adrenal glad tumor is not visible at this time. The tumor in my liver is showing less cancerous activity but i am still on chemo and after October they will do another PET scan to get a look see as to how far I have progressed. Doctor will make decision if surgery is needed to remove the tumor,they seem to feel this will not be issue,since i have made progress.
