In Memory of HAWVET (Johnny) who began the ROLL CALL thread with this post:

 

 

 

8-5-2008 12:32AM

 

I sometimes wonder who visits this Head and Neck Cancer area. I thought I would get a count. Probably, not everyone will sign up. If you do, please complete the following:

 

Forum Name, Type of Cancer, Year, and Home State

 

I will start.

 

HAWVET,Nasopharyngeal, 1998, Hawaii

 

Mahalo (Thank you)

 

HAWVET

 

 

 

With the help of Skiffin I hope to continue the ROLL CALL   for 2015.  This initial posting will be for enrollment, checking in and status. Additionally, any brief comment is welcome and will be included in your profile.  Maybe it could be a word of wisdom or a tip or trick you learned from treatment.

 

 

 

Sometime around mid-August this thread will be closed and a updated ROLL CALL 2015 will take its place.

 

 

 

As before, only those who are enrolled will be included in the roll call.   Inclusion in this list is completely voluntary and for the enjoyment and information it provides to all Head & Neck members.  Any revisions or correction you see needed please bring to my attention, preferably through Private Messaging. 

 

 

 

Without further ado let’s get started!

    I joined Jan 11th 2014

    Larnyx cancer just above vocal cords T3,N0,Mo Had my larynx remover and 86 lymph glands modified radial neck dissection on both sides. Never had chemo or Radiation just the surgery from ear to ear. I have been NED the day they did the surgery.

    This site and all the ones on here helped me get through some dark times as I accepted breathing through my neck. We're like an extended family. What have I learned the most; Keep hydrated, Never give up, Live your "new Life", and help all the new ones going through this, and honor all the ones we lost. I'm now 21 months and still NED

    HWT Candi

    Dx 01/2011 cancer of lower left mandible with positive lymph nodes. Surgery, rads, Cisplatin. Recurrances 02/2013 around left carotid and 04/2014 around right carotid. Treated for both with SBRT at Mayo Clinic and additional chemo Taxol/Erbitux in St Louis. )9/2014 the titanium placed in 2011 had to come out and 02/2015 the fibula put in in 2011 had to come out. Resulting fistula has not healed yet. Surgery to rough up and hopefully will close yet to be scheduled. My husband, my love and caregiver, had a stroke 10/2014 and passed away May 2015 so it has been difficult to regain strength. My last scan was clean and I am due for another. Still fighting the fight with love and support of family.  Have received great support here at CSN.

    Wow what a wonderful way to remember Johnny:

    Tim “Hondo”

    Lafayette Louisiana

    2002: First treatment for NPC Did just radiation 180 rad once a day

    2004: Recurring NPC in the same place Did 120 rad twice a day and Chemo

    2006: Recurring NPC again same area, was giving 6 to 12 mounts to live

    2015: Still alive no sign of recurring NPC, living with some very bad radiation side effects and Norcoses to the soft palate, but still alive and thanking God for everyday one day at a time.

    KTeacher, I have been fighting squamous cell carcinoma since August, 2010.  I live in the Central Valley, California.  Most recently I was on Taxol for palliative care, it has stopped working.  I will see my doctor at Stanford at the end of the month to see what can be done next.

    Joined April, 2012.  Terrified and not knowing the future.  This board has helped tremendously.  I don't contribute much since my DX was Stage 1 and the treatment so much less invasive that most but I read almost daily!  So far I'm NED and a thankful person!!  Rooting for all of us!!!

    Checking in...

    Diagnosed August 2012 stage 4A SCC Rt tonsil, lymph nodes and left tonsil. Chemo and Radiation. Actually feeling /doing well although have not been able to see a doctor for quite some time, after losing insurance. I still have difficulties swallowing, and assume I always will, but with the help of milk, I can eat just about anything I put my mind to, and my taste buds are back to near normal, or new normal. Had significant hearing loss and tinnitus, from Cisplaitin, still do. Took on a new career as an over the road long haul truck driver, and have enjoyed seeing family and friends, old and new places. I drive with my dog Charlie, and if you are inclined to follow our adventures, he has his own facebook page...search for Charlie the truck driving dog....I don't come here as often as I used to, and I lurk more than post, but have great appriciation for those who still provide support for the newbies...I treasure all of my CSN friends, and pray for all those afflicted by this beast....May god bless us all.
