hi, my mom was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer on 10/4/2013. We had no idea, she's 60 yrs old. It has taken a toll on our family. She's still trying to process everything. 2 yrs ago she had a TIA and haven't been the same since. The oncologist says surgery isn't an option. She's unsure about taking the treatments, because of the side affects. One minute she's feeling fine and then she's nausea and vomiting the little food that she does eat. I've read some stories off of this site and they are verry inspirational. And I know that it will be a fight and she must be willing to fight.
My husband was diagnosed with anaplastic astcytoma June, 2013. The only thing that was wrong at the time was a really bad headache. Casue he had Lysteria Menengitis at 3 months of age he had a shunt put in his head, thank God the doc in the ER was wise enough to do a CAT scan, seeing he is only 38 years old. They found a abnormal spot o his brain. After a MRI and biopsy we found out it was cancer. He has been through the radiation treatments and 16 weeks of straight Temador, and now 1 month of 5 days on and 23 days off. He starts another 5 days today
Hello, I just joined and I'm no stranger to the world of Cancer. For me it began in 1986 with Hodgkins lymphoma treated with radiation. Emerged again in 1991 as Burkitt's lymphoma and endured a lifesaving autologus bone marrow transplant. Then in 2010 having been diagnosed with a paralzed vocal chord they discovered I had Diffused B Cell Lymphoma. Been remarkably healthy but many breathing restrictions and vocal difficulties. Having possible post tramatic stress? Is that possible?

Thought I would try something a little different with my toes this October. I think if you click on the picture it will enlarge. The grandkids love them. Who knows maybe I will do turkeys for November and snowmen for December. Fancy pedicures are one of my little treats for myself. I not only do a pedicure, I get a salt scrub, leg massage, the whole foot treatment. Sometimes a paraffin dip. I found that doing little things just for me helped me so much as I went through multple cancers. Picking what to do and doing it gave me a sense of contro
This picture was taken last month (I had to sneak him in it, because he now dislikes having his picture taken)--as you can see there have been a lot of changes in the almost one year since my first picture was uploaded. My once strong, active husband now spends most of his day trying to get the energy up to do anything. Between the meds and the pain it's hard for him to go anywhere or do anything. He rested up for two days to be able to go to the festival with our girls and myself.
My beloved fiancé was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma at the age of 43. It started in the kidney and spread.
He has gone through chemo for 6 months. The tumor shrunk but lately it has started to grow again.
He is going on a new chemo protocol but the Dr. Is not very optimistic.
i want to check out options of other things we can do .
We will keep on with the doctor's orders but I want to see if anyone had good results with alternative options? we would like to combine that.
All the best,
