Hello...I'm New


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. This is my first time here. I am familiar with cancer support boards as I frequently visited MPIP (melanoma board) for support the past six months--my sister passed away last Wednesday from the beast after six months of a heroic fight. She was only 37. On the day she passed away, my mother was rushed to the hospital due to stroke-like symptoms. Two brain mets were found and a craniotomy was scheduled for the following Monday. The final biopsy report isn't in (probably Mon.) but the preliminary reports state that it's non small cell carcinoma. Since it metastisized, she is an automatic stage IV. I was very happy to find this board tonight and look forward to sharing information with everyone. I realize the enormous worth this board has and truly appreciate and thank those who operate and contribute to it--thank you!
