CANCER VICTIM SUPPORT GROUP

Description of Group
This group is intended to focus on those who are currently going through Chemo/Radiation treatments as well as those who have already completed their journey. There are also many folks out there who know someone; friend or family who are going through this and this is a place for you to come with questions as well as to vent your feelings. Some are also dealing with the loss of a loved one; you too are welcome here to share and seek support.

Please post any feel good recipes you may have that may be tolerable for someone going through this process. I have a couple of cookbooks devoted to just that and I will share some of my favorites as well.

Our mission: this is a place to vent, laugh, share, & learn. Each one of us will experience this journey differently. We all need your prayers, but we also need your humor, and up beat motivation to fight, as well as any information you may have. Each one of us is an important part of this world. Weather you have cancer, have survived cancer, know someone going through it, or have experienced the loss of someone to it, tell us your story.

Personally, I was diagnosed in January with stage III-B advanced Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. I’m 43 years old and I intend to live a long time. This is going to be a fight for me, but I know I can do it. I’m not afraid of what is to come because I’m informed. I don’t have all the answers, no one does. However if I can help you find the answer I will personally do my best to give you the information I have, or get you to someone who does have the answer.

Prayer request for a dear friend.

My high school friend went though chemo last year at the same time I did; although we had different diagnoses. She had breast cancer plus she has been dealing with leukemia for some time now.
I had non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Both of us had a PET scan earlier this year and there was no sign of our cancers.
Now she tells me she can't eat anything and she's lost about 40 lbs. They are running tests on her now to rule out colon cancer and to find out why she can't tolerate anything in her digestive tract at all. I am asking everyone to pray for her. Thank you all ahead of time for your prayers.
Also, I recently kept having chest and left shoulder pain so my cardiologist scheduled me for a right and left sided heart catherization. During the cath he found that my left descending arty was almost completely blocked and he had to insert a stent; otherwise I would have had a major heart attack at any moment. Meanwhile, as he is placing the stent I had a stroke but thank You, Jesus that I have almost no after effects except that my memory is a little worse than it already was. I am sure that was because God and the prayers of many kept me from haing any debilitaing effects.

Thank you so much for the prayers and concern. I am doing well and am waiting to hear a good report from my friend as well.
