Iíve been battling cancer since last September. It started in the kidney and I had my left kidney removed. I was in a clinical trial which didnít quite work out. They did a CT scan and they suspect lung cancer. They did confirm cancer In my adrenal gland. Today I was told the Masses in my lung have gotten bigger. On top of this I had an infection in my right foot and I have been in the hospital for nine weeks getting Antibiotics. It appears to be doing very well. So wish me luck. Iíll try to keep in touch as I hopefully get good news with the cancer. I should start chemo in a couple of weeks. Please send prayers my way! God Bless!

I'm deeply sorry about your situation, Llance. You've been missed from these boards, but obviously you've had greater concerns than posting here regularly.

I have a beautiful co-worker (and very kind) who was diagnosed with breast cancer three years ago, and went through chemotherapy and as of roughly 2 years ago is now fully recovered. I have an aunt who in her late 60's developed lymphoma and likewise went through chemotherapy and was fully recovered for 10 years until she eventually died something else, heart disease.
So there's hope.
I had a minor skin cancer myself in December of last year, removed from above my right cheekbone and below the eye. I was a bit afraid I'd been butchered in the two weeks immediately after, I joked I looked like Frankenstein. But two days after the stitches were removed, it was barely even noticeable, and is virtually invisible now.

I've seen it written often that over 90% of cancers are treatable, the key is to catch it early.

Best wishes Llance, and hope to hear good news from you in the near future.

So sorry for what you're going through Lance. Hope you do well with the chemo. They can do some amazing things these days that they couldn't just a couple years ago. And there are miracles, lots and lots of miracles. A coworker's father in his upper 80's was not given a very good prognosis. He was in his upper 80's and his oncologist said no treatment would be a totally acceptable choice for him to make. He was given about a year with treatment and whatever side effects. He chose treatment and did incredibly well and got 3 years. He was over 90 when he passed away and was able to live in his own home up till the last couple of months. I also have niece that had cancer when she was 2. It had pretty good odds for beating it at first but things just kept going wrong until my brother stopped talking about survival rates. Than they tried something that worked and now she's getting ready for college next year with clear scans for the last 10 years.

You have my thoughts and prayers Lance

Fair play!

I heard two great survival stories from my physical therapist earlier today. Itís good to hear a couple more. The one survivor had masses in her lungs Like I do. Itís been over 12 years for her and she has two little girls in spite of the doctors saying she would never be able to have children. She is in remission. Thanks for the well wishes guys!

I had a female client in her early 50's who told me in the last year she had a car accident. After the accident she felt chest pains and thought she'd broken a rib. After thorough examination, her doctor told her she had breast cancer in the earliest stages. And if not for the car accident, it would have gone un-noticed and undiagnosed until it became life threatening and possibly too late. She told me "I thank God for that car accident!"

Ironic, eh?
