    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I found out after have my surgery that It was cancer. I was sent to oncology for treatment. The oncologist told me my tumor was so big that chemo and radiation active therapy wouldn't work. He prescribe me gleevce a medication for treatment. I have a Cat Scan every three months to check my progress with medication to prevent a another tumor grow back.
