The 2 cancers’ that I beat were rhabdomyosarcoma in my right jaw muscle and osteosarcoma above my left knee. I also received a blood transfusion after chemo with West Nile virus in it. I contracted West Nile Encephalitis and was a vegetable even unable to talk for 4 months. I had to relearn everything. So if anyone wants to talk about a bad hand dealt to them I am a great listener and I’m pretty sure I know how you are feeling.
