Biography

43 year old mom diagnosed with Anaplastic Oligodendroglioma stage 3. I have had surgery to remove 90 percent of the tumor, and just started radiation and chemo. I get to take my chemo @ home as it is in pill form, at bedtime, which I like better as I don't have to sit @ the infusion center while getting treated.

I hate cancer because I truly believe there is a cure, but it is a big money operation. I have two children and hate that they have to worry about this.

Don't take your life/family/friends/God for granted. You will know who you can depend on, and who you can trust in when bad things occur.

Be my friend, other cancer patients and survivors are so informative, love to hear their stories! Very encouraging, for the most part.

Have not gotten sick yet, Praise Jesus!

My doctor's first thought this was a Glioblastoma, so they wanted me to go to Duke University and be apart of their trail. I decided against this as I am scared of doing a trial with drugs or radiation that are not proven to fight my type of cancer. I am thankful I did not go, as I did not have the glioblastoma (Thank you Jesus!!)

My church is giving us meals, and we love that. I am not the best cook to begin with, but boy those ladies can cook!!

I go to the Hope Center and to Emily Couric cancer center at UVA

Headache for 2 months straight. No other symptoms, so no-one wanted to do any scans to double check anything was in there that shouldn't be, until I went to the right hospital ER.

Temodar - no side effects yet, Praise God!
