i have had a headache for the last two weeks if any one has any suggestions please let me no
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.

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.
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
i hate having leukemia, i can’t do anything anymore. i can’t play baseball and i can’t play soccer. i can’t do what i used to do before all this happened, and worst of all i hate seeing my girlfriend suffer with me. she’s always trying to help me think positive ,but it’s very difficult to do when your in so much pain. Damn, i hate the fact that this is not only affecting me. but it is affecting her as well. why does this happen. !!!!!
I got my test results. They found two cysts in my groin. going to the ogyn (yuck) sometime next week. Hopefullly the pain will go away. I just want it to be next week.

I want to introduce College Beyond Cancer as a financial resource for educational expenses for college and graduate student cancer survivors. It is a specialized online fundraising site that can be checked out at http://collegebeyondcancer.org. Hopeful it is helpful!
I have a friend who around the same time as I was diagnosed with an MDS, like me. He also said he had a lung cancer that just “went away” and that the only reason he wasnt losing his hair was because of a reaction between the chemo/radiotherapy he was supposedly having and Amoebic Dysentery… I’m pretty sure that can’t happen. And then about a week ago he told me he wasn’t having treatment anymore because he couln’t be bothered, and then he said that he had been misdiagnosed and he hadn’t got RAEB-T, they had mistaken the amoebic dysentery for it. If anyone has any views or advice or anything, I’d really appreciate it.
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
I wish things were normal again.
I wish I could go back.
To the way things were,
Before the war.
Before, when I could run a mile without getting tired,
compared to now, when I can’t make it up the stairs without getting winded.
Before, when I could kiss my sweet sweet Ashley without a second thought.
compared to now, when she’s afraid to spread germs to me, because my immune system went to crap.
Back when I spent my afternoons playing football, and soccer.
Compared to now, when I spend my afternoons asleep, or taking treatments.
Back when I stayed out until after curfew, and spent my weekend nights on dates.
Compared to now, when 8pm is late to go to sleep, and I can’t go on dates, because I’m puking.
Back when I aced every class, and was all honors.
Compared to now, when I never get to go to school, and my grades are dropping.
Back when I could afford to be carefree.
Compared to now, when I have to monitor every aspect of my life to stay alive.
Back when I left the house every day, and worked at Chick-fil-a.
Compared to now, when I never leave the house, and I had to quit my job.
Back to when I was healthy.
Compared to now, when I’m completely te opposide.
Oh. How I wish I could go back.
Back to when things were normal…
Hey, my name is Shianne and I have Non-Hodgkins T-Cell Lymphoma. I will be fifteen on August 25th. I was diagnosed on October 13, 2011. Here’s my story..
Around the beginning of October, I started having really horrible shoulder pain on my right side and I was very short of breath. At the beginning, it wasn’t bad enough to miss school, but it was pretty uncomfortable. After about a week, it started to become unbearable. So bad that I would come home crying. So, my mom made a doctor’s appointment for me. The doctor said that I was having muscle spasms, so she gave me a perscription for muscle relaxers. The next day, I had an appointment at the heart doctor for a recent heart murmor. They did an EKG, ultrasound, and oxygen level test. My oxygen level was 85%, which explained my shortness of breath. The heart doctor did the ultrasound and something was wrong. She told my mom that she had thirty minutes to pack our stuff and an ambulance was on it’s way to pick me up and take me to New Orleans. We arrived at Children’s around 8:30 or so and they admitted me into the Intensive Care Unit. I remember being told that I had a very big mass pressed against my heart and my airway and I had a large amount of fluid around my heart and in my lungs. I didn’t know what a “mass” was, but I was hoping that it wasn’t cancer. Yeah.. let’s just say that I set my hopes way too high. I then remember my mom crying, telling me that I had cancer, but I don’t think I cried. I had every right to break down, and I remember thinking, “Why did God do this to me?” But really, I can only be thankful to him. Only Jesus can get me through this. I wasn’t given cancer as a punishment. I think I was given cancer to make myself stronger and to bring my family together. We have become so much closer and we have come out of this situation sooooo much stronger, and I couldn’t have done it without God.
I have stories of things that have happened to me along the way, bumps on the road. I would love to hear from people who have my same diagnosis and I would love to share the rest of my story. So please comment! I’m still new to this process, so I have questions too.<3
