Sometimes no one write back here but do not lose your hope & faith that things will get better. I myself believe in God & Jesus and that really help melive & last and be 5 years cancer free this summer & I am having a party to celebrate this milestone. I had a really tough time of it but I will say that in 2006 3+ times when I had a very long hospital inpatient ICU stay they thought I was dying 3+ times.  4 years after that I was driving , working out walking again climbing stairs and 1 year after that finally able to kneel again. When we become friends I can give you some details about my battle but before Feb 22 2006 wasblurry because I was in a medical ac comma and after I can out just was not that mentally with it right away. I never felt sorry for myself I just stay positive & it really helped. i hated to complain so I just stated facts about myself and then shut up. I found favor because I was so positive with the nurses & helpers at the nursing home rehab. I had a hard  time but even cancer can be a blessing or have good come out of evil. Two good things happened because of my cancer the Jr women club of West Deptford NJ can my hubby & I $7,500 worth of Gift cert. now that is a whole lot of bake sales candy gram etc.My parents gave us a down payment on my house it is 30 years old & needs a few repairs but very nice place to live near a school also. Love Meffy Mary Ellen Tohidi

 Sending my sincere care. Cancer is hard. I know you know this!! But you sound strong. Strong willed, determined and all. That's important. Sending my well wishes for your healing and full recovery. Cancer isn't Fun. I live in pain from head to toe. But I'm still here too. DH lost his job & our insurance 2 1/2 years ago.. Times are so tough.. But  for some reason I'm still walking Dead.. Fighting for our Cure!!
