I Hate Cancer!

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

I learned last night that my Aunt's Breast Cancer has returned after being in remission for 2 years. It has spread to her left lung, spine and lymph nodes along her collarbone. She said that the chemo MAY keep her alive longer. I am completely devastated right now. I did talk to her today and we shared memories and some laughs. I am going to get her some resources tonight. It is disheartening to know I am losing another loved one to this disease lost my grandmother in 2000. I have also lost many friends as well just in the last 2 years. I am also a survivor for 16 years now.

I was hoping to have more pictures from the relay by now but haven't received any as yet. This is the survivor cake that I got for the survivors it came out beautifully.

I had a good time at relay and was relieved that it went well. It was very hot I heard that if reached 99 degrees. I did have one of my neurological attacks and was grateful that it lasted only an hour. I exceeded my $1,000 goal! I raised $1,190.83!!! The final totals are not in yet for out Relay event so far my event chair says our event has raised over $200,000! I am thinking of joining the American Cancer Society's legislation network called AS Can. I'm in for the fight so that my future grandkids won't have to!

    emoticon I am so sorry that your aunt's cancer has returned.
    I've been living with Stage IV cancer since April 2007. I've been on chemo for 3 1/2 years now; the goal of mine too is hopefully live longer with it, rather than cure it.

    The cake is beautiful, and congrats on the money you raised!
    Our county has their Relay this weekend.

    So sorry about your aunt. I hate cancer too - it took away my mother-in-law.

    I am so sorry about your aunt. I can feel for you as I lost a sister to breast cancer after two remissions that lasted almost 5 years each. I was thankful for that extra time and I hope you can be for whatever time your aunt can have. God's peace be with you.

    I congratulate you for a great and successful relay. I know that you worked hard at it.

    I am sorry to hear the news about your Aunt. I am wanting to suggest getting a tape recorder and recording some conversations with her. I would love to have some of my Dad but never thought of it at the time. I was definitely shell-shocked. Embrace the time you have, remember that she will be with you always in spirit, enjoy the time you have with her. Take deep breaths. Remember that you can get through this. We always have the strength within us. My thoughts and prayers are with her.

    So sorry about your aunt.

    That is a great cake. It is always a gamble when ordering a cake, will it look good, great, or be a complete cakewreck. Nice to see it was done so well for such an important event.
