    What Cancer Actually *can* Take From You.

    Back in September, I was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer called IBC.  They don't mess around with you, they throw you right in to treatment, and I responded very well.  But, I lost my best friend, and a few other friends over it.  I guess they just can't...

    If You Find a Lump Anywhere - Go to Your Doctor

    Early 2007 I noticed a very small hard feeling under my skin on my left leg.  It was about 1cm in size. I forgot about it for a few weeks and eventually went to the doctors. He took one look at it and said 'no need to worry, it is just a gathering of tissue'. I felt so much...

    I found out the other day.

    Being a regular drug user, I never paid attention to the occasional case of hematuria. Prolonged ketamine usage will do that to ya. Now, I really wish I would've gone to the doctor sooner rather than ignoring it. I went in for a normal physical exam, and upon hearing about the...

    so from that perspective I cannot relate with many of you. My father died of lung cancer in 2009, and it was devastating for all of us, my mother, two brother, and of course my father worst of all. What do you say to a person whose been diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer and...
