    Hello, Cholita! Are you a chola?

    Welcome to WhatNext.com! I'm so very sorry to hear of your diagnosis but you've found a great place to ask questions, get information, and share experiences. I was stage IV at my diagnosis and I'm still here more than five years later so please know there's still plenty of hope.

    A few months ago, I recorded a series of videos for WhatNext about my cancer journey. You may find them helpful. I've included a link at the end of this message should you wish to check them out.

    WhatNext.com is a great place for everyone, from the newly diagnosed to those of us who've been living with cancer for some time - friends and loved ones too! While you're here at WhatNext.com, check out the questions and experiences of other folks here. You can find people who've had the same cancer, surgeries, chemotherapy and experiences should you wish. It's often reassuring to know others have been through what you're facing and thrived. I also recommend the PINBOARD - there are often humorous or uplifting posts that can make your day. Definitely worth checking out.

    In the meantime, I'm here if you have any questions or want to chat.

      That's what I'm waiting for right now, a treatment to start the chemo anytime soon

    Hi Cholita, welcome to the WhatNext site. I found this site six years ago after being diagnosed with later stage ovarian cancer. Through the years I have benefitted both from my interaction with the other cancer survivors on the site and from all the information provided. Nobody really understands the emotional and physical toll cancer takes except another survivor. I hope you will look the site over, share a few of your experiences and ask any questions you may have. Visit our pin board for some uplifting and inspirational posts and to give you a sense of the community. You can chat with any WhatNexter on their wall. Wishing you better days ahead and sending a hug .
