I was diagnosed with AML back in december 11 2010. And i have lost all my hair(which is my pride) i was very strong bout it but now im startin to wear down because ppl are confusing me for a guy and im really upset bout it. my friends dont get it and idk what to do. someone please contact me. btw im 17
Just having one of those days. I am a two time cancer survivor. Within the past week, I have had three friends that have taken a turn for the worse in the cancer journey and my friend’s dad died from cancer. It makes my heart ache. My two out of the three friends that have taken the turn are 18 and 17. The other one is 22, almost 23. It is TOO young! It breaks my heart to know that they may never get to get married or have a family or have fun at all. The worst part is that two of them don’t even live in town so I can’t be with them.
I sometimes feel bad that I am healthy. Is that normal? I know that God has a plan for everything that happens. But sometimes I wonder why them and not me? It kills me to see the families. They are just heartbroken. I just don’t like that some of my best friends may not be here anymore. I have already lost three close friends to cancer! It is AWFUL!
I guess at this point in time, all I can do is continue to pray for them and be there for them as much as possible.
i have had a headache for the last two weeks if any one has any suggestions please let me no
Hi. My,name is Lahani. I’m 17 yeats old. I was diagnlsed with AML leukemia and its been nothing but a struggle. Emotionally, physcpically, mentally… I have sought support. Been turned away for being a teen, even had people become angry with me for inboxing their facebooks. I am running out of strength. I need support from other cancer victims. Most of all I need friends and someone to talk to, not just when i’m happy but also when I feel discouraged, frightened, sad or angry about my illness. I need people who understand i’m not just feeling sorry for myself. I’vw been emotionally battered in my search. If anyone at all could be a support to me please reply. Please contact me. Thank you.
I have not had to have an chemo yet, but have had three surgeries since the beginning of October. I have a brain tumor. It is a condrosarcoma so they think it grew up from my spine into my brain, and they say the size that it is and how slowly it is growing they think it has been there all my life but just was never noticed until recently. And the type of cancer it is they say I could have more other places, so I have to go down next week to have a full body bone scan.
I have never been one to be nervous or get freaked out… But I am kinda nervous that they are going to find more tumors.. And then i don’t know what is going to happen…
And I have already had to put off school and other stuff cause of this.. And one of the hardest things is all my family and friends try and be supportive but they have know idea what it is like..
Thanks for listening!
hi my name is jeremiah i am starting a chat line for any one on here it will be a chat line number it is not only for people that went throo cancer but it is for adalts to email if interested in being apart @ jeremiahg20@gmail hope too here from you soon
Hey Guys! I’m new to this site so I thought I’d introduce myself.
My name is Rachel, and at 14 years old I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Since then, I’ve gone into remission and then relapsed, so I had to have a stem cell transplant. I’m now 18 and in remission as far as I know, but I just had a CT scan and I’m really nervous about the results. I have this horrible feeling that my cancer’s come back again. I’m trying to be positive but I don’t think I can go through this for a third time.
I just wish I could feel like a normal kid again.
Hey, my name’s Kyle, and I’m new to this. If you haven’t figured that out from the title. I have stage IV Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma, I’m 17, and doctors give me a 5% chance of living more than 3 years or so. I deal with that alright- I’m not afraid of dying, and I have a strong faith in God. What I struggle with, is that I have no one to relate to. It’s been two and a half years, and I’m…tired. I’m hoping this website will help with that. No one else I know that’s my age has cancer. So to a lot of people, I’m just the kid with cancer. I’m pretty sure there are a lot of people like me out there though.
hey everyone. im new to this site. so i dont really know how it works. im 20 yrs old && i was diagnosed with a rare cervical cancer at 17 yrs old. i had to have a histerectomy && no longer have the abililty to bear children. i have had 3 re-occurences since then. im going through thte 3rd now. ive never been able to talk about how i feel with family or friends because they dont feel the same pain && hurt as i do. i was just wondering if there was anyone else on here who may have a cervical cancer or one similiar to mine. although being 20 yrs old im suppost to be strong && not worry but that really isnt true i just found out recently that im going to loose my hair && even though my wig is beautiful im still really upset about it. i know people have it much worse than me && i shouldnt be upset but ive never felt so alone && so unlike me in my whole life even when i had like 2 friends in school. i appreciate you reading what i have to say & & i really hope i can find someone or someones to talk to maybe my life wont feel so alone or worthless..thank you
20 yrs old
Hi everyone- just wanted to say that I am amazed, inspired and just overwhelmed by this site. Each of you brings tears to my eyes…your words of wisdom and support for one another is beautiful and I’m in awe.
I recently had a student (I teach 11th grade US history) diagnosed with leukemia. He’s undergoing weekly chemo and getting ready for a 4 day intensive stint at the hospital that will happen every 2 weeks for 8 weeks. He’s been so sick– I’ve gotten close to the mom in the last 2 weeks and trying to help out in every way I can. The student, her son, has been really angry and won’t see anyone. She told me tonight that he is ready to see me– and maybe even open to the relay for life that we have at our school for our town.
I can’t wait to see him, he was super quiet in class, and I’m a really outgoing person…I talked to him a little, but with little response at the beginning of the year. I just don’t want to screw up when I see him. He hates the social worker assigned to him because she’s super cheery, etc.
Any words of advice for when I go and see him? I’m so nervous. I’m never a nervous person….very outgoing, people person, always know what to say…..this time is different. More on the line. I don’t want to screw this up.
Advice? I’d love to hear from you guys.
Praying for all of you tonight…..
