      My dad has a skin cancer which is relatively minor, non-small-cell lung cancer in remission, and stage 4 pancreatic cancer, but has only treated one at a time. He is now receiving Hospice care.

      I am currently being treated for Advanced Kidney Cancer and Metastasized Triple Negative Breast Cancer. My kidney cancer has been stable for 3 years (I was diagnosed in 2009), after dramatic shrinkage. In 2010 they found stage 1 TNBC and I had a lumpectomy and radiation treatment. I started treatment for Metastasized TNBC in May of last year, and it is responding well to treatment, my kidney cancer is shrunk some more.

      In 2007 I had melanoma and a partial parotidectomy to remove a myoepithelia carcinoma in my parotid gland. In 2010, stage IV metastatic melanoma and Mohs surgery to remove a squamous-cell carcinoma. In 2011, I still have the melanoma and I found out I now have prostate cancer.

      I’m currently taking a watch and monitor approach for the prostate and using a targeted therapy for the melanoma.

      LMM. I was initially diagnosed with adneocarconima (sp) (urethral cancer) in May 2012. Had surgery for bladder removal in June 2012. In July 2012 went for mammogram. Ductile carcinoma found in left breast. Two different cancers. Needless to say this really rocked my world. The breast cancer was early stage and I had a lumpectomy done with no additional treatment for the breast cancer. I am currently in active treatment for the urethral cancer.

      I had TNBC and while I was being treated for it, ended up with Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the tongue.
