    It just seems appropriate to start this thread this month.

    I'm a 5 year cancer survivor myself. Yep I was unknowingly initiated into the Pink Ribbon Sorority 2/1/2008.

    Treatments may end but security never returns. Remission is never guaranteed.

    If you are going through treatment, in remission, are a care giver, have a loved one going through cancer or have lost a loved one to this disease, feel free to share your story here.

    And send me a PM if you would like to form a BBM cancer group. Or click the barcode:

    Hi Moody!, I'm so happy that you are a survivor My thoughts and prayers to you!

    I lost my mom to 2 rare forms of blood cancer - Multiple Myeloma and Amyloidosis. The latter being a brutal one. It was horrible and still haunts me to this day.
    I miss her terribly.

    I ALSO LOST MY AUNT FROM CANCER LAST YEAR,BUT MY UNCLE SURVIVED FROM PROSTRATE CANCER ,I BASICALLY HAVE A BUSINESS RELATED TO ONCOLOGY ACCESSORIES AND IMAGING.
    In India it is slowly becoming an epidemic and also insurance sector not being so strong results more financial stress and deaths to poor patients.
    We need more huge investments and support from public private sector to fight it strongly.
    Moody hats off to you as it takes guts to have the courage and patience to take long medications and winning attitude to fight this disease

    Having a healthy lifestyle is only half of the equation; a lot of people don't have a choice when it comes to choosing "to have or not to have cancer" because some of us were born with the diseases that were passed on genetically.

    I agree with you , though sometimes it doesn't matter. My mom did have a healthy lifestyle...didn't help her. It just plain sucks.

    I will say prayers for all of you and you loved ones. I lost a good friend to two forms of cancer.
    It really does kill the remaining family as well as the victim.

    You're absolutely right Alice. We must do out part.

    However, for some of us it's not always due to unhealthy lifestyle.

    I've been a fitness professional for 20+ years. Always doing the right things. No breast cancer history in our family.

    I'm solid proof cancer doesn't discriminate.

    A few months before my diagnosis, I had to fellow fitness pros get diagnosed. We all did the right things. Didn't work for us. One of us didn't survive, 2 of us have thus far.

    My MIL smoked. She died of lung cancer 2004. My Grandpa smoke and drank himself into cancer. He died in 1990.

    I don't drink, smoke or cuss and I got it.

    My prayer is no matter the cause, we remember it's an awful disease affecting millions across the world and no one deserves it.

    I too have had several family members affected by cancer. Due to their wishes to not have their lives put up on the internet I won't go into detail. But one member has survived, one is going through chemo treatment now, and one has died.

    Onward and upward towards a cure.

    Wow!!! That's 4 too many!!! And I can't imagine what it's doing to you.

    Honestly my diagnosis broke my husband. It's hard to go through it, but in my experience it was much harder on my family to have to watch me go through it. At least I had good drugs. LOL

    My hat is off to every caregiver!!!!!

    Just let her cry. Sometimes that's all you can do.

    Then reassure her that you're there for her for whatever she needs.

    Most of all let her know you love her. Sometime people just need to know they are loved.

    So sorry oh so sorry ;(

    The last thing I saw before my father past away from acute leukemia was him being tubed and my holding his hand that night letting him know that I was there and that I would watch over my mom and all of my brothers and sister.

    The last thing I remember however was our bonding during his hospital stay while he was undergoing chemotherapy. He was able to get passed the first chemo session and spend Christmas with us am disappointed children which I managed to fly in from Germany and the US.

    Unfortunately while undergoing his second he contracted an infection and past that night. It wasn't easy since he was doing just fine one day and past away two days later.

    The hardest part has been having to assume the responsibility of looking out for our entire family including my own but I am a man of my word.

    For all those who are passing through a trouble time with a loved one that has been diagnosed...father would always say...I wish everyone would stop crying and spend some time with me.

    I have never discussed this with anyone and I do it now since there are several people inn forums of which I have grown to have a special bond with.

    And most important of all...don't hold back the tears. There's nothing wrong with crying no matter how long has past. In my case it has been 8 1/2 years as I write this.

    Thank-you, this resonates very close to my experience except that my mom didn't even make it through the first round of chemo...she contracted an infection as well and did not last long at all. From time of diagnosis to her passing was a month. It's painful and traumatic and am haunted by those last few days, as it was so unexpected and we didn't even have time for a proper goodbye.
    I also although being the youngest (I was the closest to her) in the family have been tasked with keeping the family together. I'm doing my best as this is what she wanted.
    The tears still come. Every day. Let it happen.

    Again thanks to all for sharing your stories. You are all very special.

    Oh Man, I just get the tears dried and then I read another. Hamster that is so sad!!! It's crazy sometimes how the treatment that is suppose to heal ends up being the one that kills.
