14 years ago today

Recommended Posts

It was 14 years ago today that I went to the doctors because I was having pain in my shoulder. I thought it was an orthopedic problem. It turned out it was lung cancer. A tumor was pressing on a nerve in the apex of my Right Upper lobe of lung. I thought then that I needed to start planning my funeral.

Some of us will beat this disease. I am still cancer free since my treatment.

Best wishes to all of you

Donna..........you were the FIRST to respond to me when I came her searching for hope and help!!! I did not even know how to navigate the site and thought I could not find you again. But you found ME! You are my hero so many times over. I've told you in the past that I want to be YOU when I grow up. 14 years ~ AMAZING. I am now at 7 as of this fall, so I am still hoping to be YOU someday.

Someday, friend, I will meet you face to face to express my most sincere gratitude for what you did for me. Someday...........

Much love ~ and hoping for so many more years that we cannot even count them.

XXXOOO,

Kasey

Hi Donna and congrats on 14 years. You responded to me too when I found this site. You recognized that we had similar types of cancer. Then I read Kasey's posts and you 2 are still the only people I've "met" with this uncommon cancer. 14 years is awesome and so is 7 for Kasey and I wish you both many more. You might recall that mine was inoperable because of the spine involvement. I still have alot of nueropathy issues in the right shoulder and arm/hand. I was wondering if either of you did too? I'm at 2 1/2 years and can only hope to get to 7 and WOW- 14. Bless both of you and everyone else too. It's been a tough year for losses and a 14 year survivor should give us all great hope and inspiration.

Thanks to all of you!

Alan I do have some residual problems that come from chemo and surgery. I have neuropathy particularly my feet from chemo. I also have 2 "broken ribs" they broke to get into my chest for surgery that never lined up and healed. But I say this is minor compared to what would have happened if I did not have these treatments!
