Chemotherapy and homeopathy can together fight cancer effectively

Our whole family was in great deeper shock when we found that my elder uncle had cancer. He is an ex-army man. He was quite lucky that he diagnosed it in its early stage.

I was diagnosed on Jan 15, 2018 with stage 4 esophageal cancer that has spread to stomach and lining of liver and both lungs. I have 3 small children and I am scared to death.

Here is my Bio

I was born in '54, so I guess that makes me 63.  I am very active and live on a 5 acre farm that I keep up myself.  I am divorced and have been for almost 40 years.  Wow, that looks so strange in black and white!  Through out my working life (the first part of it anyhow) I had many different roles.  I was the first woman to ever work in a Crown Zellerbach paper mill, and I also was the only woman to work "on the floor" in a Titanium plant.  In my early 30's I went back to school and got my degree in nursing and worked in a hospital on the Med/Surg floor for over 25 years as an RN.  I have a

Good Day

At first I was going to put in the Title Good Day uh maybe.  But I had to rethink that because every day is a good day.  Even the days that stuff happens.  Gotta find some good in there.  I know - how about I woke up and I didn't feel all that bad.  How about I made it to work in one piece.  OK got it.  Anyway.

New Survivor

Hi.  I was recently diagnosed with Paget's disease of the nipple with underlying malignancy.  I had symptoms from 8 months ago but it was thought to be something else, however, it seems to be very slow growing as it is still apparently just in the nippple and milk ducts.  I am to have a radical mastectomy of the left breast without reconstruction next week, and I thought I would just shop for a bra insert from now but have NO CLUE what to buy!  Help!  I am a 42DD, or at east the right side will be and I would kind of like to match lol.
