    Hello and welcome, we are happy to have you with us. Please feel free to join in the conversations. Here is a link to our cancer dx page for your type of cancer. Take a look at it to get you started on some information. You will notice at the bottom of that page 4 of our active users who have had that journey already, you may wish to contact them for their experience and wisdom. Also, I encourage you to go to the questions page now by clicking on the questions tab at the top of the page and post what is the most pressing issue you have right now. This will introduce you to the community and get you started with the help you need right now.


    There are also subtypes listed on this page to narrow down the type of cancer to match your dx. Also, if you can take a few minutes and fill in some details of your journey so far, it will help others as they try to answer questions for you, it also helps others as they search through the database to find someone like themselves. Confirming your email will allow you to receive updates and notices from the site when someone answers your questions or writes on your wall.

    Thanks for being with us and let me know if I can help you find any information on the site.

    Maga shared an experience

    Side Effects (Low white blood cell counts (neutropenia)): I had routine blood work done for my kidney doctor. I was born with one kidney. He called the next day and said go to ER immediately. My husband, daughter and I spent the rest of the day talking to multiple doctors and tests. It is kind of a blur. Everything was happening so fast. By 10 pm I was admitted and told I most likely have leukemia. All of my blood counts had bottomed out. And was neutropenic from the start.
    After five days, test after test and a bone marrow biopsy I went home to wait for the results to some genetic testing. The longest three weeks of my life!

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): I was admitted for 28 days. I received Cytarabine and Danorubicin. There was minimal side effects... hair loss, nausea. I have had one Neulasta shot and it is worse than the chemo.
