its been 11 years i had cancer. i did everything my doctor said i could do. i follow every step day after day i though it would never end and here i am. So please do not think to leave your medicins or quimio or what you are doing. fight and fight and put yourself pretty everyday. i am just starting to learn to use the computer. I am 53 years married for 31 years and have 4 children 1 son and 3 girls. my son is the only one married. I now leave in mexico and arizona i started a group 9 years ago to help other people that have cancer, at the group we try to give people emotional support, we talk to them, we visit them at home or at the hospital, sometimes we get them medicine, because they are mostly people with not enough money, we also, each week, we go to different places to talk about how to try to prevent cancer, how to check yourself and what to do when you think something is wrong.
and i am here if any of you would like to talk.
thank you
