It's not over till it's over

In Jeremiah 32:27 God says, “I am the Lord, the God of every person on the earth, nothing is impossible for me.” We need to hear that God is still in control. We need to hear that it’s not over until he says so. We need to hear that life’s mishaps and tragedies are not a reason to bail out.

My daughter and ATRT

My daughter Abigail, 8yrs. old was diagnosed with AT/RT. She was first diagnosed on January 4,2016 with a brain tumor. She had her surgery on January 9, 2016! We later found out it was AT/RT. We are from Buckhannon, Wv and my daugter had her first 2 rounds of harsh chemo in Morgantown, WV at WVU Childeren's Hospital. We are currently in Pittsburgh, PA. at UPMC Childeren's Hospital. Here she is undergoing 3 rounds of harsher chemo followed by 3 rounds of stem cell transplants. With each round she has a hospital stay of 3-4 weeks for each visit.


My husband was diagnosed with stage 2 high risk colon cancer, high risk because the tumor they removed was the size of a grapefruit and it's a fast spreading cancer. After it was removed I started noticing a change in his body odor, the odor is bad doesn't matter how much he showers. The only way to explain it is that it's like a foul urine smell. I was told that this means the cancer is worse than they thought. Has anyone experienced this or k ow of someone that has experienced this?  

My Story

In March 2010, I had a typical busy work day and when I got home decided to lie down for a bit.  I couldn't get comfortable, so I had my husband take me to the ER for chest pain.  I was 29 at the time and had never had a serious medical issue, but I knew something was wrong.  As it turned out, I had a DVT and pulmonary embolism.  This is when I met my hematologist, Dr. Min Sun (UPMC St Margaret).

Acute Lymphoma Leukaemia again

29 June 2011, my only child was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoma Leukaemia. End of September 2011, he was cancer free after harsh chemo therapy in isolation. He still had to do two (of five) more intravenous chemo therapy cycles in isolation. After that he was on oral chemo therapy for eight months. He was healed. So I believed. December 2015, he got very sick again. January 2016 he went for bone marrow tests. Since 2011, he already had 14 Lumbar punctures for bone marrow tests and one was chemo therapy in the spine. End of January 2016 he started another chemo therapy cycle in isolation.

4/2016 I guess I should up date some -- Click for full story

It has been 2 1/2 years now and still NED. Well when they took my larynx the tumor was inside so they got it all. I have chosen to stay active on this site for several reasons. First, many were here for me in some dark times. I came here months after the surgery and had gone back to work. However I had some PTSD I guess and survivors guilt. I never went through the why me when I was told I had cancer. It just would not change anything, and I smoked so I kinda figered it out.
