    Very familiar with your area of the world. My son graduated from Maumee High School in 2008, and he and his family still live in the Toledo area. My husband was diagnosed with neck/throat cancer in Nov. 2008 after finishing his treatments in March 2009, we moved back home to Southern Indiana. I was recently diagnosed in Oct. 2012. I have had my surgery, suffered an infection with the expanders because I chose reconstruction. This set my starting chemo back by a month. I now have three more rounds of chemo left which I will finish the middle of May. If you need an ear or shoulder to lean on feel free.

    Procedure or Surgery: Occurred a staff infection from expanders. Had to have them removed a month after bilateral surgery. This pushed the dates for chemo back by a month.

    Oh No (Money): Being on a fix income is difficult. Added expenses such as travel, prescriptions, and co-pays/deductibles are making it really hard to just get by.
