Proton Therapy - In treatment

Hey everyone out there, 


I just started Proton Therapy and so far nine treetments down. Some minor side effects so far but nothing to really complain about. Jump in and let me know how you are doing.

My Story

Hello, my name is Jared  I first was diagnostic with brain cancer after a seizure a little over a year ago and had a craniotomy where 20% was removed. Not all because I could be left paralyzed. I then completed 6 weeks of intense chemo/radiation and UofL Brown Cancer Center in Louisville Kentucky. I tried working this past 6 months to a year but right after the treatment I had many Grand Mal seizures and I even got denied for disability. I am struggling so bad right now yto even survive to live. I have $0 and just started back treatment again this time at Baptist Health in Paducah, KY.

Large diffuse B. Cell lymphoma

My 88 year old Mom was diagnosed on January 6, 2020.  She went to her ENT because of dizzy spells and thought there was a inner ear infection,   A MRI was performed and a suspicious mass behind her left ear was discovered.  After a Cat scan she had a biopsy that confirmed cancer.  A week later she had a PET scan and several other masses were found in her stomach, axcillary, hip and possible liver involvement.  Her oncologist said it was stage 4.   I'm devastated for both my parents to deal with this in their golden years.   She had a port placed today and is to start chemo next week.

My story

Life was perfect for me as 2017 darned.  Both my husband and I were retired, allowing us to travel where and when we wanted   i could est what I liked, drink wine with my meals and even enjoy a cocktail when I wanted.  I walked 10 miles a day and could gilf and ride my bike.


Endometrial cancer patient

I'm not familiar with how this works yet...is a Blog entry the same as a "post?"  Thanks.  I had complete hysterectomy im Jan 2019, then Carbo/Taxol chemo for six treatments followed by pelvic radiation for 28 treatments.  First CT scan was clear.  Second scan shows cancer on adrenal gland.  Starting on DOXIL chemo next week.  Very scared.  Anyone with similar experience?  Thank you.  

nodes shrunk but not gone

Hi There

I just had my first MRI after 15 weeks and there is no evidence of the tumour but the mesorectal nodes have not disappeared- just shrunk bu 50%  Does that mean I need  the APR surgery?

Anyone know?

Good News!

I was able to walk up a flight of stairs today! I haven't done that in about 6 weeks! I'm excited about the progress and the lean toward more independence.

Second chapter


scarlett21's picture


I went to NC and found myself in the unfortunate position of needing more help than my boyfriend could give. I woke up one morning and cried and cried about it, it was a terrible morning. So I returned to New York where I subsequently got a hip replacement. It's about 8 months since my bone marrow transplant and about a month since my hip replacement. I have joint issues that are attributed to GVHD (graft vs host disease.) My hip feels good but my other joints are making the recovery process more painful and more difficult. They switched my medications and put me on Prednisone.
