    Decision Point (A couple of weeks after the diagnosis I was determined to go on with the treatsments.): I was terrified with my first appointment with chemotherapy. I thought for sure that I would be violently ill.
    I was listening to too many horror stories. To my surprise I was able to take a nap and eventually relax.
    I recieved two types of very agrressive chemo. Thankfully i did well with it.
    Then to radiation. After a few weeks of this I could not lift my arm so well or move around so quickly but
    my body excepted these intrusions and the cancer went into remission. I even kept my hair.

    Oh No (Cancer has spread/Metastasized): The Doctor had thought the cancer had spread to my bones. I was given approximately a year or less. The
    social worker was called into to offer me support. I think I was in shock for a few moments before I could re-act to
    my situation. The hardest thing was to tell my children. So, I returned home with my death sentence. I opted for
    the chemo and radiation after the tests showed the cancer had not spread to the bones. What I had was a
    chance to fight.
