    Hi,

    I’m very sorry to hear about your diagnosis. You seem to be learning, like most of us do, that cancer attacks much more than your body. It’s not the end of the world though. My life’s plans were just thrown for a loop in the matter of a month… an entire 5-year plan basically crinkled up and thrown in the trash can. But, since this is my second time fighting cancer, I’m mentally and emotionally equipped to get through it a little better.

    It doesn’t matter how strong or experienced you are; cancer will force you to put things in a different perspective. It’s never fun, but it’s totally possible, and there’s many people here who can help you do that. We come here to help each other. And you might find yourself to be a better person at the other end of the tunnel.

    Please feel free to add me on facebook and talk to me privately if you’d like. I’ve got nothing but time. Good luck. Stay strong.

    ~Evan

    Hi. I could totally relate, I was diagnosed 11months ago with Rhabdomyosarcoma, I was 19 now I’m 20 I was also taken out of college and obviously I can’t work. Its not easy and the feeling of confusion I felt that to. At the beginning of my treatment i wasn’t allowed to go to busy places but it got easier with time, Im almost done with my treatment so i go out a bit more, if you’d like someone to talk to you can find me on FB alfarom_57@yahoo.com

    Hi, I was diagnosed with Leukaemia so I know exactly what you are going through. Yeah it’s a tough process to get through but you’re going to be strong enough to do it, all you need is a bit of courage and hope. If you want to talk to me about anything you want like the treatment, you can email me at theultimatehero47@hotmail.com. Just remember to believe that you can overcome it! :)
