Teens Living with Cancer

My heart goes out to any teen living with cancer. I am the mother of a teen who had cancer. I want you all to stay encourage  and enjoy your life, take one day at a time and remember God.  I believe that teens who have cancer are special vessels and this is just what you have to go through and you can do it couragously. I watch my child go through her illness as a champion, I dont know if I could  handle  that the way she did, she was such a blessing and so is every teen who has cancer.  Look for cures, there are some out there!  Be bless!!

Sometimes

Sometimes I feel guilty because when I’m at the hospital for a month or more my sisters at home fight, a lot and I know a lot of it is because my mother isn’t there to help them with the tough stuff, and stress, I know it isn’t my fault but I stil think if I hadn’t got cancer, none of this would be happening.

Comfortable, easy access clothing.

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!

Retinoblastoma::

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.

So 2005.

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.

-Erin

I have colon cancer.

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..
