Hi everybody, my name is Connor. I am a cancer survivor of 5 years. Throughout these past 5 years I have been devoted to helping the cause for a cure. I have participated in the Penn State Dance Marathon, a year-long money raising event for kids with cancer, and other cancer related activities. Now, I am trying to start a new Cancer Survivor's Network.

The new network will have many useful features for survivor's and those dealing with treatment. A section of the website will be devoted to survivor's stories. This is where you come in. I am beginning to compile the stories of cancer survivors, mine included. I know many of you in this forum are survivers.

If you have a chance, please email me at when you get a chance (cgm121@psu.edu) and let me know if you would be willing to donate your survival story. Thank you again for your support!

Connor (cgm121@psu.edu)

I am brand new at this. I was given a 6% chance of surviving stage IV colon cancer just over 3 years ago, and then about 2 years and 9 months ago I was give a 0% chance of surviving glioblastoma brain tumor (life expectancy of 6 mo. to 2 yrs.) Simply put, one Doctor told me I had made a "complete liar" out of him, and insisted I "keep it up". Survivors I ran into through work, and by openly speaking of my situation, has helped me a lot, and now, I wish to help in some way, if I can, by reaching out to others. You caught my attention in my very first attempt at this because your name happens to be my mother's maiden name, who died of cancer in November of '99. What can I do to help ?????
