  • Five Year Survivor

    Five years to the day that I was first diagnosed with stage IV cancer. All survival rates are based on a five year span. Five years today and I'm still here.

    Five Years Cancer FreeJanuary 28, 2016
    When I reach five years with no recurrence, I will be getting a tattoo on my left wrist of a teal and white awareness ribbon with the roman numeral for 5.

Today’s Thoughts…

May 7, 2014//Just got back from doctor’s appointment.  Seems a small, 2.2 centimeter, area lit up pretty strong on the PET scan. Chances are good it is cancer. They want to attempt a biopsy sometime in the next week or so to try to confirm before deciding on treatment.  It is in an awkward position, deep on the pelvic wall – buried in necrotic tissue, adhesions, and scar tissue from previous radiation therapy – so may not be able to reach it but want to try.  The miracle would be for the biopsy to come back negative, not cancer.  But more likely, if it confirms cancer, or if they are unable to biopsy, I’ll go back to the doctor in two weeks to discuss next steps.  Likely chemo.
