you have youth and strenth on your side. Poeple beat cancer everyday. Just don't loose focus. Please take your nutrition seriously. It'll be hard to eat sometimes, but don't let yourself stop eating. I'll keep you and all cancer patients in my prayers. be with you every step of your fight.

My uncle was diagnosed with prostate cancer 5 years ago ... they caught it early and he reacted well to the treatment so he considers himself very lucky ... the one thing he learned while in the hospital is that regardless of how, all life ends in death ... and it really liberated him in the sense that he started to really live ... do things he always wanted to do but said there wasn't any time ...

Good luck to you, find what's important in your life and make it your focus.

However, I believe my surgery removed all of it, and am halfway thru chemo (not so bad) and feel I am cured after being diagnosed on 9/11/09. I am 54 years old, and you being in your prime is a great advantage.

I am going to Texas Oncology off highway 6 in Sugar Land. I feel I am getting the best possible treatment and every one there knows me by name. My doctor is almost always there, I get my chemo there, I get my PET/CT scans there, on site pharmacy, great nurses.

I tried to get a second opinion at MD Anderson, but my surgery would have been delayed a month, and I've left numerous phone calls and emails that no one has responded to for a second opinion.

Due to my aggressive type of cancer, and my low platelet counts which has reduced the frequency and concentration of chemo, I am considering radiation treatments of 1 hour a day, M-F, for the next 6 weeks. But the risks seem high for the benefits. I can also get this same treatment at my current facility.

You need to turn your attitude around from "death sentence" to "second chance". Everything I've read and heard suggests that a good attitude is half the battle. You body responds to positive thoughts and feelings chemically, and reacts negatively to negative thoughts and feelings.

If you are at MD Anderson and want a second opinion, I highly suggest Texas Oncology in Sugar Land.

I wish you well and pray for you. Feel free to call me at 713-301-1872 and we can talk about our experiences. I've been able to get out a few times a month to ride and expect to continue to do so and be declared cancer free in a few months after my last chemo.

it sounds like we are in the same boat, do you remember what your first inital reaction was when they told you. all of this is still sinking in because they just told me last night, and id be lieing if i said apart of me still thinks i can just walk out of here that all of this is a bad dream or something.

Welcome to your new outlook on life. . .Every day from this point on will take on a whole new meaning. In 1997 I was given a 10% chance of survival, that day changed my world!!! I've been visiting M.D.Anderson for 12 years now and it hasn't slowed me down one bit!!! I learned to appreciate EVERYTHING, both good and bad. Take it day by day and take it all in stride. All the support you can handle is out there, you just have to WANT it. Took me a looong time to realize that I NEEDED it. . .
I understand the consequences of my actions prior to engaging in those actions. . .there are certain situations in life where the risk is totally worth the reward.

Being positive will definitely help get you through this tough time! My dad was diagnosed with cancer last summer. It had also gotten into to some of the lymphnodes in that area. They did surgery immediately and took out eVERYHTNG (has a colostomy bag). He went through 2 months of chemo, 2 months of chemo/radiation, and another 2 months of chemo at the end. He fought really hard and is now Cancer free! We have a family friend who was diagnosed with 3 different types of cancer at different times (2 of those times they sent him home to die!!) He fought hard and got on a really good, healthy diet, and started drinking wheat grass juice everyday, and he is a 3 time cancer survivor now! I hope this helps. Keep your bike, enjoy your life with the wife and kids and make every second count even AFTER you beat this! This will be a hard road, but you are young and have plenty of reasons in your life to fight. does amazing things so believe in that and know that you have many people saying prayers for you.

May bless you and your family. Just keep focused on beating this and live life everyday like it is your last. My grandfather was given 3-4 months to live last september and he is 78 years old. today he is almost cancer free. works wonders you just have to believe and be strong. you have alot of prayers and support coming from people you havent met ,cause it doesnt matter what kind of bike you ride its about pulling together when a fellow rider needs help.

the emotion is the hardest part. it's going to take a conscious effort on your part. i too have been visiting md anderson for 3 years now. my situation is nowhere near as extreme as you and the other posters. but it's all the same. i have seen so many different cases over the years. it dosent pick and choose gender, age, culture. but i wish real hard for you to one day soon be a survivor. till then
