    Hi genagirl,
    Don't believe the stats. One of the reasons vaginal cancer has low 5 year survival rates is because most women are 70+ when diagnosed. We are young chicks, so our odds are much better :) You can do this! Let me know if I can help in any way. I've been through it all...

      It's so scary and I thought I was getting the best of it. If the Dr. didn't just say I can give you chemo not to cure you but to keep you going I might not be so afraid. But when you hear that from a Dr. it's so much to take in. I want to beat this, I want to go on with my life but how?

      Genagirl, my cancer will never be cured (barring a miracle). But, i can live forever with cancer as a chronic disease. If your doctor can keep you going, new treatments might be discovered. In my case, i am back to living a full and happy life. I get reminded that i have cancer when i have to have treatments every 2 weeks and scans every 6 weeks, but otherwise, i don't have much time to worry because i try to stay so busy. I guess at any time, my tumors might take off again, but until that happens and i no longer can live fully, i am thankful for cancer as a chronic disease.
