    Hello and welcome, GWilson. WhatNext is a great place to get advice, support, a sympathetic ear and more. The folks here definitely "get it".

    I was originally diagnosed in 2013 with stage IV ovarian cancer and thought it was a death sentence. Initial treatment was rough but I made it through. My life has changed a lot in the five-plus years since I heard the words "We think you have cancer."

    Since that original diagnosis, I've had two recurrences and recently stopped treatment with Avastin and Topotecan so I can get a much-needed knee replacement. My tumors are very small and have been stable so I hope they continue to behave as I can't be undergoing chemo and have the knee surgery.

    Please take some time to explore this site and check out the links, resources, Pinboard, and questions pages. You'll find lots of great information as well as a few chuckles. The people here are also happy to connect and answer your questions about our cancer journeys and how you can navigate the changes to come.

    Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or want to connect.

    As a stage IV survivor - you're a survivor from the moment you're diagnosed b y the way - you're a member of a very special club. It's a scary place at first but I'm here to tell you it's not as bad as you might think.

    Hi there. I am riding in the motor home heading to good old Bullhead City. We just left Tehatchapi headed to Mohave for the night. Weather quite windy and wet, but we need it. Have the fourth of February stamped in my memory. Will contact you a week or so after to see how your doing.

      The last photo I saw of the Grapevine showed it closed due to snow. I sure hope you guys didn't have any trouble with weather! I know what that's like.

      Bullhead City ought to be nice and relaxing for you. Have fun!
