      Any caner stastistic you find is at least 5 years old because the cancer community considers anyone that survives 5 years or longer with out reoccurance as cured. I can tell you from my own experience that I have hit the 5% part of the stastic at least 5 times in a row. I like to tell eople that stastically speaking I am dead because of this. I work with stastics professionally and can tell you that it is best to just not pay attention every situation is different and will defy the stastics in some manner.

      I have been listening to Dr. Dwayne Dyer every night - he is a psychologist, writing, speaker and he works with Deepak Chopra on the issue of holistic living, healing, thinking, and all the intangibles that go with joy in life. Please try to check out one of his books online (listening helps me fall asleep each night). I believe in the power of intention, excellent nutrition, exercise, and joy. These, combined with outstanding medical care, may help you move past the question of life expectancy and move into the realm of "life". I hope you have a support network in your community, family, friends. If not, this one seems like a good place to be. Lisa, James' Mom.

      I was diagnosed with Adrenal Cortical Carcinoma in 1997. There is not much known about it. I was told I am a miracle? Not sure how or why. I sure don’t feel right though….I believe that if you were born with 2 organs and have one removed, it should be supplemented with something??? I cannot handle stress at all….it wipes me right out:(
