Well I was 10/11 When I got my cancer I am now 21. I had a tumor on the right side of my head. The docters did not know what it was, so they treated it like E-wings Sarcoma. I went through chemotherapy for a year, and radiation for about a month and a half. It was tough, but I made it. My hair started to grow back, but only on my left side. At first I was embarrassed to be seen without a hat or wig on my head. I would not even let my immediate family see me that way. It took a while because of all the bullying I went through for not having hair.
I am a 66 year old male and I thought I was in perfect health. Aside from Asthma and Allergies I had never had any type of Serious Illness. That Changed a few months ago when my primary care physican sent me to a urologist because my PSA had creeped upward from 2.3 to 4.1. My Urologist gave me the usual series of test digital scan of my prostate, removal of samples to send to the lab. He told me before he sent the samples away that although my prostate was enlarged he "could not see" any cancer on his scan.

A dear friend and classmate passed away yesterday in Italy after 1.5 year long fight with stage 4 colon cancer. He was 47 years old, a great guy, a loving husband, a father of 2 children. I feel angry and guilty. I am still here and he is not. I don't know what to say to his widow. "He is at peace"?, "At least he is not in pain anymore"? Words are empty and meaningless. I can't handle any more suffering and death. It's unfair. Cancer be damned.
