    In 1991, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 non-Hodgkins lymphoma in my thymus that had spread to my left lung. After surgery and chemo, Dr. Senecal suggested I have a bone marrow transplant. It was a miracle for me. This month I am celebrating my 28 year Anniversary of being free from lymphoma. Thank you Dr. Senecal! You are the best doctor ever.

    I am going through Chemo right now for 4 cycles in FL. I used the Digicap for my forth treatment and everything went fine. I was able to stand the cold knowing that I probably wouldn’t lose my hair. Wrong. I followed all the instructions to a “T” and my hair all fell out on day 15. I had the rest shaved off. I would have kept paying the hi…

    Living with cancer

    This article, so very well written by a practicing oncologist, is superb! Dr. Salwitz truly captures the feelings that I (and probably thousands of other cancer patients) have. Cancer does suck! My cancer is rare. It grows slowly, but it grows. I do not “look like I have cancer.” I hear so often,“You really look great.” The problem is I …

    Living with cancer
    Updated Oct 26, 2013

    I was diagnosed last February (2013) with stage IV lung cancer. A shock to me, needless to say, as a non-smoker. Unless of course you count those funny things I smoked back in college 40 years ago.

    Besides the support of family and friends, I have found keeping my sense of humor throughout my journey has been the best medicine, other than the…

    A Summary of My Chemo Experience

    What I've learned
    Added Jan 7, 2010

    This is a summary of the chemo treatment I survived. I have never experienced anything like this. Radiation, and even surgery, was a breeze in comparison:

    6 treatments, one every 21 days:

    - for each treatment, Brad and I were there 2.5 to 4 hours (always had the bloodwork and meeting with the doctor a day or 2 before treatment)
