    Chemo was not working

    Oh No

    The chemo actually made the tumor grow! My doctor stopped the chemo and ordered surgery.

    Finished treatment

    Celebration

    I was so excited that I had finally finished treatment. I was in treatment for almost a year. I did 10 rounds of chemo, surgery, and six weeks of radiation.

    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    In October my doctor informed me that the cancer was back and that it has metastasized. I am devastated ....
