1st sunrise of 2015

It is a new day, a new month, and a new year.  In the strange world of cancer, we celebrate many things,  treatments being finished, successful surgeries, the love and support of family and friends. anniversaries of years after diagnosis  and sometimes our celebrations are sad when we are celebrating the life of a loved one who has lost the battle.   Cancer is one of those things that strikes fear just in the name, but  cancer also summons great strength and enlightenment in those who are fighting for their lives.  Each day is a blessing to all of us.

How it starts for me

I just learned yesterday that I have lung cancer. We don't know yet what stage, or if there are cancerous cells in other places than my left lung and 11th left rib, with a cancerous mass on the rib (inside, on my back, left of the spine, roughly an oval 5cm by 3.5 cm - 2 inches by 1½), and a pleural effusion.

I am 44 years old, stopped smoking 4 ½ years ago, and thought I was in pretty good shape, all things considered.

Hello

Hello

My breast cancer experience using laser surgery

It was this time last year that I learned I had breast cancer.  No "deck the halls" Christmas 2013 - I was numb, but as we are nearing the end of 2014 and I reflect back on my year, it was time for me to share my experience with laser surgery.

Soon to be a breast cancer survivor

Hi, my name is Gwyn and I'm 39. Twenty five days ago, Nov.10th 2014, I got that call. The one I prepared myself for yet was a shocker, the one confirming I have stage 2 Invasive Doctual Carcenomia (I still don't know if that's the correct spelling guess it doesn't matter) I have no blood relatives who have any cancer, so how did I catch a bad case of it? Ive had a lumpectomy (3cm tumor) with some lymphs removed under arm, and last week the Dr put a port in. The next day, Dec.
