How Does Immunotherapy Work Against Cancer?

If you happen to be at the start of your battle with cancer, or if you know somebody who is, here are a few things you should know about immunotherapy.

My background and history

Virtually my entire family has passed from come form of cancer, with the exception of my maternal grandmother who died from complications of a broken hip at the age os 98. 

My maternal grandfather was a heavy drinking "abusive" alcoholic, implicated in the death of at least one of their children (infants), and passed away before I was born.

My mother was a "heavy" smoker and developed a soft tissue small cell Carcinoma  which metastasized and eventually killed her at 77, dispite all the "treatments" she underwent. 

Uncertainity and Loneliness

Finding very difficult to cope with this  uncertainity. I had undergone breast cancer treatment last year. Now i have a cyst in one of the ovary and have a 2cm gall bladder stone. Life after diagnosis and during treatment was not so easy. And as of now  I am feeling very low and lonely, dont feel like talking to anyone, as if no one can ever understand what I am going through. I am unable to live a normal life with this new normal life.

I am my grandpa's caregiver, and I don't mind taking care of him he raised me and didn't have to. I am angry that people claim to care when it suits them and when they want people to feel sorry for them. My grandpa is dying and I know this, he has a son that doesn't come see him and grandkids that don't come see him.

September 30th was my five year anniversary!

When I woke up on September 30th, 2020, I literally started to shake. I told my husband it was the fifth anniversary of my hysterectomy. Then I started to cry! I MADE IT!! When I was first diagnosed, I read the statistics that said I would most likely be dead before celebrating this milestone. When I started on this board, there were four other women who were diagnosed about the same time as me with UPSC. They are all gone and I'm still alive! I don't know why I made it but they didn't. It's not like I had some magic formula.

What is cardiovascular System

The cardiovascular framework is once in a while called the blood vascular or basically the circulatory framework.  It comprises of the heart, which is a solid siphoning gadget, and a shut arrangement of vessels called corridors, veins, and vessels. As the name suggests, the blood contained in the circulatory framework is siphoned by the heart around a shut hover of vessels as it passes over and over through
