    • Never take no, or inaction (a form of “no”), as the final answer. Keep fighting. Your life is the most important to YOU! Don’t give up. If one doctor tells you to give up, find another. Keep fighting. Research your doctor. What do others say about him? Where was he educated? Is he interested in research? Is he with a private practice or a university hospital? Not all treatment facilities are created equally. The US News and World Report publishes a list of best hospitals every year. The National Cancer Institute designates certain hospitals that have been proven to deliver cutting-edge cancer treatments to patients. Other hospitals also deliver excellent services, but if you are uncomfortable with the treatment you are receiving, keep looking for a facility in which you have confidence. You know your body best. If something doesn’t seem right, make sure your doctor knows. And takes it seriously. Keep in mind that your oncologist works for you. If, at any moment you decide he is not doing an adequate job for you, fire him. You do not have to continue trusting your life to him if he loses your faith. Your medical team holds your life in their hands. Find the ones you trust completely. Try to maintain as normal a life as you can. Eat as healthily as possible. Drink plenty of water. Exercise as much as you are able. Smile, even if you don’t feel it. Watch happy movies and laugh. Cancer is an awful disease and none of us want it. But, it doesn’t have to consume your every thinking moment. And, it shouldn’t. A common emotion that is experienced by most individuals at some point or another, fear is considered to be a normal, natural part of life.  However, fear can lead people to experience a wide array of physical and mental changes, and irrational or intense fear may interfere with a person’s happiness, sense of security, and ability to function effectively. Consult with mental health Counselor.

    • Leia,

      HI there. What's going on? Have you heard back about the biopsy? Seen anyone for a 2nd opinion? Is he feeling any relief from the treatment?

      I'm here for you to talk to & want to make sure you remember that.
