    Overcoming fear
    Added Nov 12, 2018

    I was told I needed a liver transplant and I was worry at first. Then I thought about who created this body and my fear went away because I thought about what I had read in the Bible. ‘COURAGE in Time of Fear’ Psalm 46 and it over and over. I look at all things I have done in life and thought all the peoples I had met, and my family members I lo…

    I just found out I have this, I have known something was wrong for a while. Glad they finally figured it out.
    Mixed feelings, wanted to know why I was so tired and my legs would itch and drive me nuts. Once I found out it scared me to death.

    During 3rd week after 1st chemo treatment my hair significantly started to come out; at 75 yrs. my wife still calls me the “silver fox” despite the extreme thinning; however, I’m confident the hair will return and I can resume as my wife’s hunk; I was told to take Claritan to help eliminate or reduce side-effects—-IT WORKS! No more headaches…

    Was the day before Christmas
    and all through the house
    I’m the only one stirring
    that great big pot
    The stocking are stuffed
    and so am I
    with Christmas candy
    and a big pizza pie.
    With the second Christmas here
    and no cancer in sight
    That’s the best Christmas gift
    that God had in his sight.
    All the family is here

    Living with cancer
    Added Jan 31, 2015
    This article, so very well written by a practicing oncologist, is superb! Dr. Salwitz truly captures the feelings that I (and probably thousands of other cancer patients) have. Cancer does suck! My cancer is rare. It grows slowly, but it grows. I do not “look like I have cancer.” I hear so often,“You really look great.” The problem is I …

    LISTEN TO YOUR BODY
