I lost my grandma to liver cancer back in Jan 2004, 9 months I lost my mom, not sure to what but she went to bed and didnt wake up. That was in October. Nov i found out I was pregnant, Nov 2nd to be exact. I had my daughter in June, got married in August on the 6th and was diagnosed wihth cancer August 7th. I had a new baby, a two month old and a new husband and was diagnosed with caner... There really isnt anything you can say to someone who os going through that Just be there and support them through it all. I did not go through chemo, it wasnt the type that would work, surgery was my only option. So I lost 4 ribs and 2 pieces of my spine. Its a small price to pay in order to stay here with my new husband and daughter.

All that happened two years ago. I'm still here...

Feb. 1, 2008 at 4:18 PM The BIG C is the unknown, we could all speculate what might cause it but I do think it is alot more random then we think...People of all ages get it, some are health freaks all there lives some are born with it..I wish I had the answers but I don't and I sure am not going to try and figure it out...As far as comforting those with it, just be there for them, that is ALLL you can do...They just need your support.
