I am a 37 year old wife and mom. I have a wonderful husband, who is my best friend. He has always been a great husband, but once I got sick he has amazed me. We have two children, daugher 9, and son 5; they are my pride and joy. I am so lucky to be able to enjoy the small things that so many people overlook. God has shown me his comfort in ways that I could have ever imagined.
I was finally diagnosed in May of 08, and had a liver resection May 23, 2008. The liver resection did not come back with clean margins, and it showed lymph node involvement. I have spent the summer enjoying my kids, and gaining strength. They did not start me on chemo right away, that was probably a mistake. But I can't go back and I can't change it now. I will begin taking the experimental drug AZD6244 next week, and pray that it prevents the spread of this monster. I am hoping that it won't have the sideeffects that chemo has, so I can stay active and be very involved at my kids school.
Thank you for this great site.
