I HATE cancer. You came into my life this summer and have taken away what makes me me. You've taken away my ability to mother my kids, be a wife to my husband and I have to have people take care of ME. Just when I was healing and getting better a complication came up from my treatment with you and I am once again at square one. Cancer, why don't you just leave people alone? Or better yet, why don't you leave good people alone? There are plenty of murderers and child molesters that you can visit rather than people who are trying to live good decent lives.
Oh no:(! I'm sorry to hear that:( It is terrible it happens to people who don't deserve it while some really bad people go unharmed through life:(
Thank you. I was featured on the news here because this cancer and my surgery. I hope it's okay to post the link here but if you're interested in watching http://www.fox4kc.com/videobeta/watch/? ... 25facbcf94. It's been a really rough year, hoping that 2010 will be better. Nothing worse than having your freedom to do anything taken from you.
You're very lucky to have such a supportive family and community:)
My friend Wendy had the same thing but since this was about 4 or 5 years ago, she lost part of her left leg from the knee down. She also had part of her lung removed, but she's cancer free now:) I hope that gives you any consolation. She gets around fine because she has a titanium prosthetic leg. This is her- I had the hardest time looking for a pic where she didn't have a drink in her hands lol.
