    I am terrified but I can't let anyone know, so I go on with a smile on my face. Does anyone else do this? How do you cope with the cancer and trying to be strong for everybody else? I watched a family member die from Cancer and I am so terrified that this will be me that I have put everything in order including my will and DNR. I know I am depressed but I can't tell anybody. I have no one to talk to about this.

      Hey there, my name is Staci and I was just gonna let you know that I have been touched with cancer. My mom is a survivor of breast cancer and AML. Like Dave said coping isn't an easy thing and it wasn't easy for her to deal with either. She had good and bad days. Prayer helps I do know that. Whatever you do don't ever give up! Feel free to look at my journey and if you ever need anything contact me, I don't mind. You don't have to go through this alone, thats what this site is here for. I will be praying for you. Hang in there.
