    Stomach Cancer

    I was diagnosed with Stomach Cancer in 12/2009 and went on to have 3/4 of my stomach and 18 inches of intestines removed. I followed up with chemotherapy and radiation. Since that time I have had no signs of any cancer. However, I'm still worried that it may come back again. Not many survivors are found with my type of cancer and I'm looking for a support group.

    I'm happy to hear that the cancer seems to be gone! Here is a link to the National Cancer Society website to help you find local support groups.

    Find Support Services in Your Area - National Cancer Society

    Please check with your doctor's office and treatment center as well for suggestions.

    Reaching out can be an extremely positive experience and help lessen your fears about the future!
