My mother was diagnosed. I'd love to hear about your experience.

I would love to know what you did to keep the cancer from re-occurring. My Stage IV cancer came back after only 5 months and I am finished chemo again, but wondering what can I do to prevent re-occurrence? Any suggestions?

Thank you for showing encouragement. I believe in half full but when you get bombarded by discouragement it eventually make you question what you believing for.

11 cancer survivor. Diagnosed with stage 13c in 2002. I feel blessed. Do not give up hope.

Hi I was stage 3 in 1991, still cancer free. There is hope, I was almost killed with chemo, but I am here to say I was blessed with great doctors

My sister in law was just diagnosed with stage 2 ovarian/uterous cancer. Had both ovaries and uterous, and lymphoes, and others removed. Going to get chemo soon, needs to go through chemo eight times. Any experience you can share will be greatly appreciated, particularly on how/what she can do to prevent the cancer from coming back. Thanks.
