Looking for LTS support groups in South Jersey/Philly Area

Hello everyone,

My name is Matthew. I am 38 years old and a survivor of ALL Leukemia and Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, dx'd when I was 5 and in remission since age 8. I also contracted Hepatitis-C via transfusions (though I am doing well with that, and about to begin treatment--something I have been dreaming of for more than a decade as I awaited the latest treatments to reach FDA approval), and septic-shock (which I experienced in 2012, a complication unrelated to my other experiences).

Any Survivors in Los Angeles area??


I have a dear friend that is battling stage 4 cervical cancer for the third time and it has just spread.  She is young and vibrant and an overall amazing human being.  She hasn't left the hospital in over a month and is feeling down and losing hope.  Are there any Survivors on here in the Los Angeles area that would be willing to pay her a visit and give her some encouragement?  Or does anyone know of any local organizations to look into that would visit her?  Thank you so much in advance!!!

Multiple unrelated cancers

Does anyone know of any studies being done on multiple unrelated cancers? I have had renal cell (2001), bladder (2015), lung non small cell (2015) and liver small cell (2016). I also lost a brother, at the age of 30, 20 years ago to multiple myeloma, a sister had breast cancer 6 years ago and my mother had lung cancer, since deceased. I have been told that all 4 of my cancers could be caused from my smoking? Just wondering?

When people are not being supportive

I don't think my spouse is really suited to support me in my fight against cancer.  It has been mostly me supporting her, and I have grown weary of it.  It is like she is the one with cancer, but she is healthy as can be.  I have taken care of everything for her financially.  At this point I need to spend my money on myself and the other cancer patients I have grown to love an support ast they love and support me.  How do I get out of this situation?

ALL CANCER: New Diagnosis

I hope this is appropriate to post! I just shared this on my FB for family and friends. I have now had breast cancer # 36yrs, thyroid cancer at 38 (and met surgery 2x) brain cancer at 44 in 2005 and just had my 2nd craniotomy a few weeks ago....I found this very wise. I am an RN and always advocate for myself...BUT I know many don't. It is very important and there are so many resources for us out there....FOR MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS FOR FUTURE USE (AND HOPEFULLY THERE WILL BE NO USE FOR THIS).

Living with cancer as a chronic condition

I am a breast cancer survivor and recently leaned that I have some cancerous lymph nodes and a small malignant sacral lession that are believed to be a metastatic recurrance of breast cancer.  My onlcologist says it is very unlikely that this recurrance can be cured, but she is fairly optimistic that it can be controlled long term.

This concept of cancer as a chronic disease is very new to me and wondering if there might be others here with similar circumstances.

Anger, anxiety, depression for survivors

I had my last reconstruction surgery in September. I thought I'd feel great at this point but instead I'm irritable, anxious, sad. I feel ashamed to be feeling angry when I should feel lucky to be alive. Most days I'm fine unless something sets me off like the death of a colleague this week. Accupuncture, therapy, and exercise help some. How did other handle this?
