No one, especially a "doctor" has the right to say you will not survive! There is more than hope and that is to become fearless. Fear will destroy all the energy and health you have to tackle this situation. I would enjoy sharing withl you more and suggest some materials that I have read that are more than uplifting...tales of survival through the human mind, will to live and love. Contact me if you are interested (firstname.lastname@example.org ) for I only want to help you and all of this information can be overwhelming! You are more than in my prayers you are the love. I too am going through thr trails of this horrible "C" word but I will not surcumb to it or to doctors that do not have my best interests. We must take full responsibility for ourselves! We know our bodies best! JillieView Thread
