    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I struggled with all aspects of my procedures. Throwing -up , bruising, no sleep, loneliness, stress, depression,mouth sores, loss of muscle, argumentative, loss of hair and "why Me". If it was not for the caring doctor, his staff and the great hospital nurses along with my family support, things could have been a lot worse.

    Finished treatment

    Celebration

    After 6 months of treatment, I was done! Back to normal life again, without even looking back.

    Cancer is back/Recurred

    Oh No

    After a six year remission, my Cancer was back. This time, I was to travel from Dallas to Houston. MD Anderson was my next stop.I used all my savings paying for a place to stay during outpatient treatments. My parents, who were retired, drove down to care for me, while my fiance took care of my son back in Dallas. They switched places on weekends and we all spent the holidays in an apartment in downtown Houston. Not again....
