Hugs to Jake & Crew, I read through your post and thought I know how you feel but only as the caretaker.....I can only imagine how hard it is for the person going through it..

Recently I believe our new oncologist closer to home said this to us.....living with cancer, they are trying to find a way for people to live with it like any other disease, like heart, diabetes, find the right blend of meds (chemo in this case) that keeps the disease at bay and yet keep the person alive and living their lives without disabling them with too much chemo.....I thought it was an interesting take on the whole cancer treatment thing.. If they cannot put it in remission, just enough to let them live their lives..

Anyway.. hugs to all of you battling cancer...and to the caretakers too who are in the battle with their loved ones..

Sorry to hear the news but wanted to give you a bit of encouragement. I have a dear friend who was diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer when she was in her late 30s. She's had multiple surgeries and relapses, but is still here going strong at almost 50.

She truly is a walking miracle. Her phone message is "This is xxxx, I'm out saving the world." - and she is. She is the most giving person I've ever known.

The best to you - I know that you deserve it. You are a dear and kind person.

I am so sorry to hear the bad news. But from posts I have read, you are very strong, motivated person. I hope you can get into the JH trials and beat the cancer. You will be in my prayers.

Thank you. Sorry I haven't checked in lately. There are some behind the scenes things happening I will tell you all about once I have all the details but for now, it's just nice to know others are thinking of me.

Thinking of you....

Shugar

Back on the boards, thinking of you and want to see how you are.

Just did my treatment last week, working my way back to pain free and know it is right around the corner as is your next good news moment. Let us know what is happening when you are ready.....we will keep you in our thoughts and prayers!! You are not alone and you have many friends for every positive moment.

I agree Kate, I would like to know how Shugar is doing myself.. I do hope she posts soon..

Hugs to you too, keep up the good work. My husband had his treatment yesterday, seems to be ok today. Last treatment he was not good at all, so cranky like a complete personality change, not him, and we figured it was the steroid they were giving him.. I think it is decadron or something like that. We eliminated it from this treatment and he seems so much better....

Keep up the good work...

Shugar, please let's hear from you.. hugs!!!
