Topic: Anxious...

Angst, fear, hope, tears....Ben's chemo finally starts tomorrow.

My partner Ben was diagnosed in August 2010 with non-resectable stage IV intrahepatic CC with 6-18 months prognosis.   He was 51 at the time - and he is now 55. 

Don't give up!

My Mom lost her one year battle with CC on April 3, 2009.

"A prognosis is simply an audit of how truly precious each day is.  Live each day to the maximum, celebrate what was, and what is - Don't spend your life looking forward to what will or might be." .... words of wisdom from my beloved son on hearing of his grandmother's CC prognosis.

Re: Anxious...

Good luck and I hope that it works as best as it can. Load of positive thoughts coming yours and Ben's way.

Best wishes,

Gavin

Tom,

If you all are dressing up for Halloween I think Ben should be a superhero, SUPER CHEMO MAN or something like that. And you can be SIDEKICK OF SUPER CHEMO MAN. Dress up and show chemo who is the boss of chemo! And maybe when he goes for his treatments you can wear your capes! Should make the other patients laugh and laughter is the best medicine.
