Topic: This terrible disease
My name is Jerry I am a 36 year old male.I live on Long Island in New York. In March of 2006 I was diagnosed with Bile Duct cancer. At first they did not know what kind of cancer it was but after several CAT Scans they finally determined it was cholangcarinoma. By the time they caught on it was already to late, the cancer has spread to my liver, pancreas, colon, gallbladder and parts of my lungs. I am currently undergoing Chemo therapy and am on so many diffrent pain killers. My mother died of breat cancer when I was just 19 so it has been quite an emotional battle.
However I have found joy amoungst all the pain. I recently got married to the women of my dreams, and we now have a beautiful town house and a cat. I never thought I would be able to love a cat! I find joy in the simple things and I take nothing for granted. I have learned to embarce life and I hope that others are inspired to do the same.
I am hoping by joining this website that I will be able to talk with different people about my experiences, and get some help on dealing with this devesating disease. Good luck to all of you how are in teh fight and I wish you and your family the joy you deserve.
