    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    My God, it cannot be. I have followed every plan since original call in 1997! How could this be? I am done, I am through. ...but I do not want to die. I have such happiness in. My life now.

    Fatigue (tiredness)

    Side Effects

    Once I realized there is life after chemo and making friends along the way, it has gotten better. My doctor assures me I have a long life ahead of me and encourages me to be positive and keep fighting!
