Topic: Becoming informed...

Hello Everyone!  It seems this wonderful place has brought me back to my senses in that I find great encouragement and support each time I visit.  Why did I stay away for so long...who knows!  All of the postings has led me to find strength and appreciation for all of you for sharing your experiences and wealth of knowledge.  Today I've learned about Sir-Spheres, yesturday I learned about CyberKnife, the previous day I learned more about the latest on Gemzar and Cisplatin!  I'm feeling less stupid each day!  What a blessing this site is and how blessed I feel for knowing & learning through your stories and support.

Re: Becoming informed...

We aim to please just like a big family. The more you read up on CC and treatments the less scared you become. Not that reading makes it go away but to be armed and ready to fight is the best way to approach the CC monster. Some where  in our family of geniuses there will always be an answer. Please feel free to come here often and to advise, ask or vent, we are here for you.

Karen,

As a librarian, I second that emotion. This website is a very important repository of information, a living, breathing encyclopedia!
