Topic: Intro from 28 year old in Greater New York area
I have been following this blog for a few months and wanted to take this opportunity to properly introduce myself.
I'm a 28 year old from the CT/ NYC area who has been diagnosed with intrahepatic CC this past June. More information about my diagnosis can be found on my blog at http://connectwithjoe.blogspot.com. As you can see from the blog, I have an incredible support network, especially my mom, sister Lis, and Sarah who have been instrumental in navigating through these unchartered waters.
I have a CT scan scheduled with my Connecticut oncology team later this week to check progress after my six chemo sessions. My doctors plan on keeping me on this same treatment plan for the foreseeable future.
I feel extremely comfortable with my team of doctors (oncologists, surgeons, radiologist, etc.) at both Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, (MSKCC) and St. Vincent's Hospital/Swim Cancer Center.
I wanted to reach out and have some open communication in case anyone had any questions or insight. It certainly is a small world of intrahepatic CC patients, especially in my age group!
Good wishes to everyone battling cancer out there!
