I would just like to say while everyone has been fighting with friends & family and bitching about this election a friend just passed away from cancer. There is now a wife without a husband, a parent without his son & children without their dad. He never once said anything negative about anyone or his situation & embraced the positive under such a dire situation. We could all learn a lot from him. Stop it, all of you.

to new adventures!

My oncologist is retiring after 18 years together and I'm moving to the Pacific Northwest. There are a whole range of emotions taking place right now as I'm reminiscing, reflecting and anticipating the changes that are about to occur. I've met some horrible doctors during my life, but I am not afraid. There is a lesson to be learned from every experience and I believe this is going to be a great one!

hey hey....

Not sure if this is allowed or not, but I started a blog before I joined the community here. You can check it out Not a solicitation just easier than typing all of my feelings back on here. I'm trying to make a difference and get things done, focusing on young adults & especially young adults who get neglected once treatment has ended. Sometimes it's harder living after cancer than during. I was not prepared for the myriad of complications following treatment and there needs to be more resources for survivor's. Cancer needs to be treated as a chronic illness and as much as I want to believe there will be a cure, I feel that the big pharma & insurance companies won't let that happen. All of us know (or should know) that the money is not in the cure, but being in the health care system for the rest of our lives, if not physically, mentally.
