My cancer has changed every aspect of my life

I have learned that I must stay 1 step ahead of my cancer

Just keep in touch with me....don,t pigeon hole me...

Cost of meds is main thing

went to liver resulting in R.F.A. of 2 tumors and resection of 2 more leaving satilite tumors in liver, then to both lungs with 7 small lesions and now back to 1st surgical bed

Right now I may need rides to and from radiation treatments, or money for cost of gas....

U of M medical center Ann Arbor Mich.

everyone reacts different, just be honest with yourself with how you are feeling on a dailey basis
