Re:How to tell special needs child about the cancer - Thursday, August 15, 2013 8:42 AM
Hello All... Thank you SO VERY MUCH for your kind words and excellent advice. I love all the ideas and suggestions. I think I'm going to go with the cancer buddy one :) She is super attached to me and would feel better feeling part of things. We plan to tell her tonight after seeing the surgeon. Special thank you to Rena for saying no matter what, hearing the word cancer is hard. I've had alot of people (I know they mean well) tell me Stage 0 is nothing. I told them it isn't nothing to me. Thanks again to everyone and I pray for all of you..the true angels :) Kirsty

Kirsty:

Good luck to you.  Stage 0 is still cancer regardless of what anyone says.  The nurse that gave me my results told me that it is the best kind of cancer to get.  Really!!!!Maybe in her world!!

I recently was on the What Next site of the American Cancer Society's website.  I thought and then asked the question of other cancer patients :what is the dumbest question or comment you heard during your time?  The answers were unreal.  Everyone agreed that the comments were not meant to be hurtful but it's just people don't think before they speak.  Try not to put too much time into these senseless comments.

Hi Tiamarie.. plezd to meet you.  Bless your heart... how is your radiation doing? No, I am a supporter.  
So you are in remission for the above cancers hopefully? Now its thryoid cancer?  How did that come 
about, I must ask?  Awww :(... God please help find a cure or quick treatment option for our friend? 
So she can lead a normal life free from all these Cancers she is experiencing right now please? I must 
ask who else in your family had or has the same Cancers as you do and did?  And, if you have kids 
have you been able to get them screened?  I am root'n for ya my friend.. :)  "Never give up" there are 
remedies and medicines that will help if you are experiencing any pain?  And, there's got to be foods 
(veg.'s and fruits/.. that can help possibly to cure you?       Together we can cure this disease"  
Friends4life,

Artqween...

Re:Introduce Yourself - Friday, September 06, 2013 8:35 PM
Hello - My name is Susan. After 3 weeks of tests and knowing I had a cancer that had metastasized, I learned today that I have IDC on the right side and the left has abnormal cells (similar to having an abnormal pap from what I was told).  My mets are in my ribs and spine. I have yet to meet with an oncologist but have appointments with a surgeon and an orthopedist that specializes in spine issues.  

I'm pretty sure I'm going to opt for a bilateral mastectomy but unsure what will be suggested after that. I don't know much about my cancer other than it is IDC.

Can anyone suggest some specific questions that I should be asking? I'm very overwhelmed and want to make sure I get the best treatment to keep me going. 

Thanks so much!
Susan
