What did you prefer to wear in the hospital? I wanted to wear clothes, but got sick of pulling the sleeve up for blood work or the front down to access ports/tubes/wires. Anyone else feel the same way?
I was thinking of making a couple clothes with buttons/velcro in certain areas to make access easier for nurses/doctors and maybe make things a little more comfortable for children.
Suggestions, stories, opinions? Let me know what you think!
Hi, my name is Erin(:
I am currently 14 and a Freshmen in high school.
I was diagnosed with Retinoblastoma when I was 10 or 11, in 4th grade.
It’s very unusual for someone of my age to find it so late, or to even have it.
I was hoping to find someone else maybe who has it, has been a long-term survivor or maybe someone similar to my case..
I really want to know more about it, but there’s not much for me to find because of the rarity of finding at such a late age.
Thanks, God bless you all.
lol you must read this! its hilarious! it talks about teen with cancer with true and hilarious things that never seemed funnny until u released it
you know your a teen with cancer when you don’t know your way around school, but you know the hospital back to front
you know your a teen with cancer when after discharge, you get up in the middle of the night at home and try to find your drip pole and unplug it so you can go to the bathroom (i cant even tell you how many times ive done this lol)
ok well here is the site
ok well im new to this site man do i wish i hadd known about this site earlier ok i had aul luekemia not to long ago and if u dont know what aul is its i had all and aml plus i had bmt ok well now im good and starting to get back to normal well now none of my friends talk to me they talked to me barely during treatment but now none at all. and if by chance they see my they either dont know what to say or all they want to talk about is cancer im so tired of this what do i do?
wow. feels alot better to just get it out there.
my dad passed away of it when i was 3 1/2 years old.. passed it on to my brother and me. Ever since i was about 10 years old, i’ve had to go in for yearly colonoscopies. i think the worst part about it all is dealing with the embarassment. nobody wants to say “i have colon cancer”. i spent years wishing it was something less gross, like liver cancer, or leukemia.. now i’m 18, and i’ve learned to accept it, and that if someone is weirded out by it, then theyre nobody to keep around..
two years ago they did the usual colonoscopy and found that the benign polyps had grown into cancerous ones. they pulled them out for testing, and the next year they found no new growths.. going in for my next scope in a month and a half.. i’m scared to death.
i don’t want to go through chemo. spend months, maybe years, bed ridden, having my whole colon removed, being dependant on everyone else for everything, not being able to work, or go to school. going through multiple surgeries, all for what? i know that its gonna be tough and i should just do it, cuz its my life we’re talking about.. but at the same time i dont wanna go through all that pain..
im not even sure why i’m writing this here, i guess i’m hoping someone or someones can relate.. even a little bit.. i hate feeling alone like this. like i only have myself to talk to about it..
Hi, my name is Sara Batt. I had first gotten cancer when I was 4 and my cancer hadn’t been diagnosed till I was nine. I am 16 now, with 7 years of recovery. If anyone would like to talk, I am all open for any questions.
I live in northern california and I had cancer when I was 14. It’s now been 3 years in remission for me, but I’ve never gotten to talk to anyone my age who was sick. if anyone is living in norcal, central valley specifically that is or was sick and would like to talk, please email me ! I’d love to talk. my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Has anyone tried ice caps during treatment to prevenmt hairloss to a level? I’m probably more interested than I should be, but just wanted to see what people had found cheers m’dears. xxx
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 @ email@example.com im a good listener and talker:) <3 (think about the fighters survivors and the taken)
