My name is Debbie. I was diagnosed with ACC in March 2003. I had a large portion of my upper palate removed and now wear an obturator. I don't have anyone in my community that has gone thru this. I had 6 weeks of radiation. I just want to meet someone who has this disease and visit. I feel all alone out here.

    Hi Debbie! I am from the thyroid cancer, but I went on reading other topics and came to yours. I know I can't tell you anything of your type but I can tell you that you are not alone if you need a friend I am here to talk with you. All I can tell you is that I have been a cancer patient for almost 16 yrs I am now 34yrs old. So I know what you go through except different treatments. I will have you in my prayers. If you need to talk you can email me at this web page or at

    Bella1985, I agree with
    Bella1985, I agree with Matt. This thread is really old. You can make a new one. I also had an ACC diagnosis. I am 27 years old so I understand the young part.:) there are several of us on this board with this particular diagnosis. You are not alone. Please continue to post and look for encouragement here!
