My name is Karmen and I am a five year cancer surivior (PTLD). I am pleased to say I have had no relapses and I am doing quite well! I am currently in my third year of doing a BSc in Nursing and am working on my Advanced Major! Cancer has impacted my life in more ways than one and so I have decided to do my Major in Pediatric Oncology. Considering I was a teen myself going through cancer, chemo, etc., I thought it was fit! My topic is helping teens stay teens throughout their hospital/cancer experience and the nurses role, and was hoping you guys could give me some ideas of what’s important to include. How did you guys feel when newly diagnosed? How did you feel if friends visited and told you stories of what was going on back at school, how did you feel missing school, what were some characteristics of your favorite nurse (likes/dislikes), how did you feel towards your parents/siblings/friends? How did you cope through your experience, what made you strong/fight? How did your life change? How do you live your life now (dwell in your old life?) Some questions as examples!
Anything will help! I really want to write a great paper that will help other teens transition through this time. Thanks guys
I THROW MY ZOFRAN IN THE AIR SOMETIMES SAYING AAYYOO… WHERE’D THE BOX GO? This should be made a like on facebook, if you ask me. To confuse people.
If anybody on here is British, add me? If everyone here isn’t British, tell me to go drink tea and play croquet or whatever you think we do. And if you want someone to talk to (like there aren’t enough lovely people already) then add me.
LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS OF LUVVIN <3 <3
Everything changes during a moment
Someone’s life begins while another ends
A smile turns into a frown
A room full of people turns into nothing
Everything you ever wanted to do,
Nothing else matters
Nothing else is important
You no longer belong to yourself
Everything you use to love,
no longer holds interest for you
Peace is no longer found in faces or places
War is lurking around th corner
The only thing that matters
The only thing that is important
In August (2010) I spoke to a girl named Megan. I hardly knew her but after having a one message conversation with her, I didn’t hear from her again. About a week ago I got an e-mail from from a guy named Cody saying things didn’t work out so I would just like to thank him for letting me know. My best wishes to the family and friends.
Please feel free to comment
hi, my name is Chantel. im 16 . i found out i was diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma in the month of July 2010. i was pretty shocked that i got cancer because i thought it came mostly from family genes, but neither my mom or dads side has cancer of any sort, so i learned something new. I was really scared hearing all the stuff i had to go through and not being able to have a good summer. i thought my friends would visit me when i was out of the hospital, but i haven’t seen them in a month and a half and really miss school already. i guess i just feel isolated from everything since i cant be active like i use too.
so yeah i took a class at the hospital called cancer is your friend.. and i didnt understand it at first but after a couple of classes i realized that you shouldnt hate cancer all the time for what its doing to you you should be happy that its made you such a wonderful person. i am now very stronge and confident and i help people and alot more now i mean you dont need cancer to learn that but there are some good things that come from this disease
well ive been in the hospital know for about a month:( ive switched to a new one:) and im doing radiaion and chemo so hopefully ill achieve remisson and wont relapse again. relapsing is hard espically 3 times and when u go into cardiac arrest and when the doc tells u ur gonna die. but so far ive proved all of them wrong and ima keep doing that:) ive had to deal with so much and ive had so many friend with cancer that i practically know everything about every form lol just kiding:) if anyone ever needs to talk you can email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org im a good listener and talker:) <3 (think about the fighters survivors and the taken)
I have two amazing friends named Sarah and they have cancer as well.
Just wanted this post to be all about them.
Cancer is a tough battle, but they WILL beat it!!! <3333 Love you girls. Keep strong!!
Kelsey Harper, a doctoral student at the California School of Professional Psychology, is designing a support group to empower, strengthen, and support siblings of children and teens with cancer. Enhancing resilience in siblings of children with cancer will provide them with the strength and tools necessary to effectively cope with the variable, ambiguous, and unpredictable process.
This project needs adults 18 years or older, who are a member of a family currently experiencing recent diagnosis, treatment, or recent remission within the last two years. You can offer your ideas with this important group of children, and your family offers your help in building a play group special for children like yours, helping give much needed rest, fun, and growth to siblings of children with cancer.
If you can participate, please follow this link to the online Powerpoint presentation outlining the project and the curriculum (http://www.slideshare.net/harperk2/enhancing-resilience-in-siblings-of-children-with-cancer?from=share_email). After viewing the presentation, please follow this link to an online survey to answer questions about you and your family, your feedback on the curriculum, and additional comments about the needs of families like yours (http://alliant.qualtrics.com/SE?SID=SV_8vQgHCC5h6Ut2K0). Please have only one person per family complete the survey on behalf of the family. Thank you for your help with this important project.
Please contact Kelsey Harper at email@example.com for questions or more information.
My name is Jamie Buchanan. I was diagnosed with brain cancer when I was 14 and I am now 18, celebrating 3 years in remission. My way of giving back has been through art collages. I make them filled with thoughts of, Happiness, Perseverance, Hope, Inspiration, etc. I sell my collages in prints & tee shirts, bags etc. I will be donating 10% of each sales’ proceeds to an organization called iy. It is an organization created to help raise awareness forthe age group of teens to young adults battling cancer, or in remission. It is a great organization, go take a look at my artwork & Please help!! I have posted both of my websites.
