Hi, My name is Devon. I’m 19 years old. I have Hodgkin lymphoma stage 2a. I got diagnosed in September, after I had open chest surgery to get a big portion of the tumor out. I dont know anyone my age dealing with cancer. I wish this on nobody, but I still wish I had someone to talk to that understands what I’m going through. Even though I have cancer I still think my life is amazing. I just got engaged to the love of my life Keith. I have a supportive family and friends. I also have the faith of God and knowing that he will always help me through the bad stuff that happens in life. Well, if anyone wants to talk I have a cell phone and I have a facebook. Just let me know. xoxoxoxo
CANCER SUCKS!!!!!!!!

Post-Radiation Sarcoma

December 7, 2011 by  
Filed under Uncategorized

So I just had a recurrence after 8 years of being cancer free. I was originally diagnosed with Synovial Sarcoma in 2002, and was cleared for remission in 2003. This summer I found a tumor n ear my original one (right knee) and had it biopsied, radiated, and removed. Now I’m facing 6-8 months of chemo.

The tricky situation is that the biopsy tentatively revealed that I had the same cancer as before. However, after they removed the tumor and analyzed it, they found that it was a different form of cancer known (in layman) as Post-Radiation Sarcoma. Basically, the radiation I received in 2002/03 caused a completely separate mutation and cancer to form 8 years later.

Everything in my prognosis looks good, and I suppose it doesn’t change things very much, although I may have opted for amputation if I knew the true circumstances of the tumor. Frankly, I could opt for amputation now, if I so decided.

I’m wondering if anyone else has dealt with this kind of tumor. It’s really confusing to think about…. I don’t know whether to be relieved or upset. On one hand, it’s a good thought to think that there weren’t Synovial Sarcoma cells hanging out in my leg for 8 years. On the other, I’m now afraid of what radiation therapy can do to me in the future (even though they’ve implemented new technology in that field).

Hi:), I am not a cancer patient, though a person that is really close to my heart was diagnosed and prompted me to my research for my english project on leukemia. Part of the requirement is to interview a person to add to our report. I was hoping to find somebody :) that was or is diagnosis with a type of leukemia to ask questions about the changes in their life: emotionally, physically, and how the community and friends reacted. Anybody want to be interviewed? Any sort of help would be so nice! I would sincerely appreciate anybody will to share basically their story with me:). Thanks :) . You can email me at lexaguiar@aol.com or comment on this. I have to have this out in an interview format, so the questions are the following:

1. How did you react after being first diagnosed?

2. What kind of treatment did or are or will go through?

3. How did your community react? Friends, school, work etc…

4. Did treatment affect you physically?

5. What was the hardest struggle you faced?

6. What was the biggest change, if any in your life?

Please tell me I’m not the only one who’s seen this movie! Anybody? Leah?

It’s obviously dramatized a bit to make it into a solid dramedy, but some of the emotional points related to cancer were so spot on. There were 2 scenes that made me tense up in my seat because they literally happened to me about 4 weeks prior.
