      We have a spot on your home page that you can set your blog to auto-post on WhatNext. Go to your account page, then look at the right hand side of the page for the RSS FEED line. You will need to get the RSS FEED URL from your blog site and enter it in that slot. Then, each time you make a post on your blog, it will also show up here for everyone to see. There will be a link automatically placed to take people back to your page to read all of it.

      Let me know if you need help doing this.

      So, so sorry, webbsurvivor. My dad was barely 49 when he passed away from lung cancer. It was 6 m9nths from diagnosis to his funeral. But, that was nearly 40 years ago. Survival rates have improved somewhat since then. It sounds like your husband did everything right ... sometimes life just doesn't seem fair. Big hugs.

      My wish is for you all to survive because this is so scary. But in my case the biggest take away was, that while individual living is our goal, our most important duty on earth is to make a better life for those around us while we are here. If you all get remission, then it is a matter of when will the other shoe drop? Thats the way it is for all of us, only most don't recognize that. Doctors cannot make life promises because they do not know what is already decided about your journey. I do not believe this is all there is. I believe my husband exists still in another plane, but that his time here was complete, so I and his children accept with grace, that truth. But fight hard, because in the fighting, may be the lesson you are meant to learn and share.

    Hi! I was diagnosed a month ago with Lymphoma. No history in family, I have run 6 marathons, just felt some nausea, I went in to be checked and my world turned upside down. I used to be a writer and decided to Blog about my cancer journey. It has been therapeutic for me and, evidently, it has picked up by lots of friends and forwarded to others; they seem to be really enjoying and laughing along (which we all need)
    Feel free to check it out.. I am sure you can identify and hopefully it adds to this community
