Do you personally know someone who is fighting cancer?
I have and my wife has the C word
My step dad had cancer in the throat. He did chemo and no longer has cancer, taste buds, or a sense of smell. Kind of sucks but he's still alive.
My step-mother has esophageal cancer. :(
My friends 5 year old son :(
Yes. Turning over every stone & refuse to go down without a fight. It seems really important to continue living as much as body allows. Gratitude has been helpful. I have had a few pity parties but they end up being counterproductive for me.
My mom fought and won against cancer she was announced as cancer free Nov 27 2013 (:
My aunt is fighting ovarian cancer with a passion for her two sons, husband, and the rest of us.
Not anymore. He could only fight it so many times.
My wife is going through chemo right now for breast cancer. She is doing well so far, and praying she beats it.
My mom had breast cancer..
I wish you and your wife luck!! (:
Currently fighting and several that have already lost the battle.
Those whom I know to be fighting it successfully I sometimes forget they have cancer.
My dog :(
:( so sorry.
Yeah and not a lot of winning but love carries them through!!!
my 18 year old is a 17 year survivor
What a battle you've been through. Whatever your softness, bet you're a tough cookie after dealing with so much. God bless and please follow up and let us know more.
My mother in law is losing the fight. She has 2-3 weeks left. :(
My roommates father is. I've spoken to him a few times but he's not strong enough to travel right now so I've never really met him. I just try to support my friend as best I can.... Don't really know if there's anything else I can do
My dad had prostate cancer 12 years ago. My sister is fighting breast cancer for the 3rd time. She's beat it twice and will beat it again.
Not any more. :(
My mother in law lost her battle with pancreatic cancer in 2011 and my paternal grandmother passed away from colon cancer. <3
Yes, me in 6th month of radiation an chemo.
God bless and keep you through this trial. I understand.
My cousin's husband had a bone marrow transplant because of lymphoma. but it's in remission. Otherwise everyone else I know lost their battle. Two of my mom's friends, my grandfather, my cousin, and a friend
and my uncle. I forgot about him :(
Not at the moment...thank whoever ... But my dad passed away in 1997.
And two friends and a family member: two with breast cancer, one with Lymphoma
Can you tell us what you're going through. I've found very caring people here.
Actually he died of "lead poisoning."
Yeah but he was fighting the cancer. The lead is just what killed him.
No one currently, however my sister- in- law just marked 10 year anniversary of a bone marrow transplant. No more leukemia!
Too many :-/
Then again, I suppose that beats the alternative - having used to have known someone fighting it.
Not at the moment. I haven in the past.
My friend just lost his battle
My uncle is battling leukemia. Cancer has been a scourge in my family. I'm terrified of it. I've already resolved that if I'm ever diagnosed with terminal cancer, I will take my life before I let it kill me in an agonizingly slow way.
Not currently, thank god.
One of my brothers was just diagnosed with small cell lung cancer. He finds out his options for treatment today. Would appreciate prayers ...
Will do. (((((Huuuuggggs)))))
My history teacher last year and before is fighting(and winning again) it for the second time
Not anymore! My dad is currently in remission he kicked colon cancer and non-Hoskins lymphoma in 2013. Boo yeah
our best friend just had her reconstruction surgery and is now rocking a new rack
My grandma had stage four lung cancer, but got rid of it. It's coming back though...
Yes. One of my family friends (she's 14) was just diagnosed with osteosarcoma.
That's terrible :( I'm sorry
Her mom had a different kind of cancer 10 years ago... She said that hardest part is not knowing if her daughter's cancer has spread (waiting for test results). Less than 1000 people per year get osteosarcoma.
I hope she can be a part of the majority and not a part of the 1000 :/ wishing her the best of luck.
Thanks! We're keeping our fingers crossed
My husband. Colon cancer. 5 chemo treatments left and than PET scan.....
I'm sorry for your hardships. He's a brave man to go through so much. Best of luck with the treatment. I'm sure he has a lot to live for :)
I have lost numerous family members and friends to cancer. Also work with CA patients. Right now an old friend has melanoma and they might have to amputate her arm. :(
My mother had 8 siblings. 3 are still alive. She and the others died of cancer, lung, brain, breast, bone, and pancreas. I have prostate cancer.
I'm sorry, Mark. I hope you are winning your personal battle with it.
I'm sorry for your hardships mark. Stay strong buddy.
Such supportive comments. Thanks! I don't think of myself as some genetic victim, and am doing fine so far, just a little trouble from the medication. Thank you again.
And don't anyone think of me as "poor mark2." I'm nearing 70 and have led a wonderful life of travel, and adventure, became an expert in fine wines and cuban cigars, and wound up influencing international events.
I have a good wife, successful son and two 5 yr old grandchildren I love and who love me. My volunteer work keeps me busy and what more could anyone ask.
My grandma just passed away at the end of December. She had cancer. My step-dad has cancer.
Dad recently was diagnosed with prostate cancer and even more recently had his prostate removed, so technically he's cancer free. My mother in law had breast cancer and a mastectomy 2 years ago. My aunt has leukemia.
And my grandmother has skin cancer :/
They removed my dads colon cancer.
And... My grandpa had some skin cancer removed last week.
Thankfully, no. Nor do I presently know anyone, who knows someone fighting cancer.
Hard to imagine, but glad for you and yours.
Thank you, ak. It hasn't always been like this, so I'm deeply thankful for this period in time.
I'm hoping to be in that enviable spot one of these days.
I will hope with you...
Not anymore. :(
I'm sorry for your loss Jenna... :(
yes multiple people. sadly a few are not doing very well
Not anymore... good friend of mine went into remission
Yes, but only because I'm a RN. Otherwise, no.
