    This stupid illness has claimed way too many

    people I loved and cared about, including my mother and best friend. I have a close friend struggling with a rare form of it, that will not kill her but will forever deprive her of a certain quality of life. I have watched people I love struggle with it, suffer from it and be...

    Even Cancer Can Be Funny; That Good Old Mountain Dew

    When they found out I had cancer it was so advanced that I was kept in the hospital while beginning treatment. I don’t think I could had been luckier if the ambulance hadn’t taken me to any other hospital then the University Of Minnesota. My care was absolutely wonderful...

    My Favorite Survivor

    I was reading the "EP Cares" section earlier today and noticed they had asked who I would name as my favorite cancer survivor. My sister is my favorite survivor. We found out that she had ovarian/cervical cancer when she was in her early 20's.  She was told at the time, due to...

    “A flip of the coin” is the phrase

    that ran through my head as I sat in the doctor’s office on Friday. As a kid, there was that one guy in my class who could flip a quarter perfectly in the air so that the light would catch a perfect shine on the coin every time. During any coin toss, we all agreed he would be...

    Long before, I used to give random parties to people I hardly know. So there was one of those guys, about whom, all I can remember is to be a nice person with a warm smile. Though we both wanted to be friends and exchanged numbers, neither called. It has been 4 years since. But...

    It has stolen the light from him. Someone who was once the life of the party. Nothing got him down. Now he hides from his family ashamed and angry at what this disease has done to him. And who could blame him. I can't imagine everything hes going threw and feeling. Today he had...
