I have had skin rashes and sores in my hair which formed large scabs.I have lost most all of my hair and now wear wigs.I need to clear my throat a lot in order to talk.I have cramps in my feet and legs but only at night. I have diarrhea an average of 4 times a week.

      I haven't yet come to grips concerning the fact that I could die from this.I think I'm just going along with my life and hoping with this medication the cancer will shrink and I will be fine.I know friends are praying for me and I am in Gods hands.Since I was diagnosed, my cancer has shrunk and for the last two and a half years I have been on a holding pattern with no different news but today was different. There was more activity and the doctor is going to put me on a new medication.

      I like your attitude. You are concentrating on living. Keep on. I’ve battled with lung cancer through 2 lobectomies. So far no chemo. God is with us through life and death. I’ve faced death and God was with me. He’s with you. And, anytime you need me, I’m glad to share and to listen.
