Cancer is back/Recurred - Santana

Oh No Associated with Mantle Cell Lymphoma. Posted on June 9, 2014 View this journey (85 Experiences)

Well, Two weeks after I went into remission for the sixth time, I noticed a hard growth above my right eye.
Two weeks ago I was admitted into the Hospital for Ririno Vires, and Bacterial infection in the lung. They also confirmed Mantle Cell above my right eye.

I am starting Radiation this week to get rid of it.
So, on to round # 7, I look like a MMA fighter or boxer.
Someone asked me if I was a fighter, and I said yes that I was fighting Cancer, (fighter that is in round #7).
The way I see it, is I won the first 6 rounds, and I am ready to end this fight against cancer with a knock-out.

This time it is harder because the tumor is on my face.
People will say I look good less often now, but I know people who love me will treat me the same.
I used to think, if they only saw my tumors, they might not say I looked good.

Peace and Love

    Hi Santana, if I haven't told you before, I'll say it again, you are an inspiration to all of us. It sucks that we have to deal with recurrences but armed with God, our loved ones, and an attitude like yours, we get through this day by day. Sending hugs your way my friend.
