    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...

    UPDATE: I had a talk over with my mom

    and we decided it's best if I get surgery and they try to take some of the cancer out. The doctors think it's a really good decision as well. Not only that but I think I may let a intern work on me. The hospital im going to is a learning and hands on hospital so I figured why...

    I've never been diagnosed with cancer,

    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...
