    Was the day before Christmas
    and all through the house
    I’m the only one stirring
    that great big pot
    The stocking are stuffed
    and so am I
    with Christmas candy
    and a big pizza pie.
    With the second Christmas here
    and no cancer in sight
    That’s the best Christmas gift
    that God had in his sight.
    All the family is here
    except my bro and wi…

    I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1996, I was 39, it was found through a breast reduction and I was in stage 1. I did not have a 2nd opinion, I was at a good hospital so I just did what the doctor’s told me to do. I was so scared. I had radiation, I had “27” lymph nodes removed and 5 years later developed lymphedema in my left arm. What …

    Hello Everybody:

    My name is Alonzo Black, a blood disorder patient who has overcome the flares that caused my sickness most of this year. Just like some people who are trying to find some type of solution to their problems or go back what is considered “normal” life, I wanted to encourage someone who is on the same journey—while you are goin…

    I was diagnosed with CLL March 31 2013. Initial reactions were not fear or worry, as I had no idea what Leukemia was all about. A year later……..well, I know a little more. I’ve experienced quite a bit in the last year.
    Back to last year. Once I figured out I am pretty dang sick, my attitude became “we got this!”. As in no biggie, we can be…

    LISTEN TO YOUR BODY
    You’ve probably heard this before; however, it meant little to me until I was the one being told, " You have colorectal cancer." If you are experiencing something out of the ordinary, such as pain or discomfort that will not go away, call your doctor.

    What's the Big Deal About Being Happy?

    Updated Mar 7, 2012
