Lauri Posted November 12, 2003 Share Posted November 12, 2003 Hi, all! My mom, Pat, has finally been given a diagnosis of Stage II by an oncologist that she happens to like very much. Although he is pretty sure there is no signs of spread, he is also scheduling her for more tests. He is very optimistic that he can successfully treat her without surgery and has been acting very quickly to get the ball rolling So far, no signs of metastasis and they are very happy about that. My mom retired in June and has not gotten a computer for home yet. I have been telling her about all of you and printing out helpful tidbits of information to give to her. ANYWAY.....since she will begin a 6-week plan of chemo/radiation next week, I was hoping maybe some of you could send a short, friendly hello and maybe some advice or words of inspiration to help her through her treatment journey. She will be taking Platinol and Taxol by IV twice a week for six weeks. We meet with the radiation specialist tomorrow. It's my wish to print out this thread and give it to her a day or two before she begins her treatments. Any little bit helps!!! Thanks!
