Re: Mop up chemo experiences

I think I have read the oncologist note a half a dozen times, radiology report is best read in a year. My mom and sister are so relieved,
we lost my dad and brother to cancer. S0 glad I had enough fight and certainly better care than my brother who died of colon cancer at 30.

Re: Sorry, I can't do that, I have cancer....

I shared the cancer card, passed it off to my husband to use so he could get out of something stupid and work and spend time with me. Does that make me the user?

Re: Newly diagnosed rectum cancer

Wow, that sounds totally cool, five treatments. I actually think the radiation was the hardest on my body, skin down there so fragile, so short course sounds good.
