I was recently reminded — repeatedly — by my 10-year-old son of how much my cognitive ability has been impacted by cancer and chemo.
Perhaps more fundamentally, being otherwise occupied has distracted me to a degree from the omnipresence of cancer.
There is something so profoundly altering about being diagnosed with cancer that it results in a new understanding of what is important.
Customized treatments demonstrate good response rates for mantle cell lymphoma and chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
I can’t think of a single positive reason one would ever go to an oncologist.
I have a steadfast belief that the last place one wants to be when ill is at the hospital—After all, there are sick people there.
Imbruvica, Calquence and Venclexta demonstrate good results in combination regimens.
Calquence is the second therapy approved under a new program that lets companies simultaneously apply for approval in multiple countries.
Just because I look quite healthy does not mean that I am. To quote my oncologist prior to chemo, “You had no idea how sick you were.”
There are only so many incurable, life-altering diseases that one is really game for. And I think I have already reached my quota.
To hopefully put some context to all of this cancer talk, it is probably a useful exercise for me to share a bit about who I am.
Sometimes conflict is unavoidable and the past few days conspired to put such discord in my path.
Many of us with cancer just need a place to articulate our experiences and connect with others who are, sadly, sharing similar trials.
September was designated as National Blood Cancer Awareness Month in 2010 by United States Congress.
Cancer is not subject to the rules of time and science that pertain to the rest of the universe. Cancer has its own calendar.
