    So great to hear your message of support. I have been on this journey since December when it was discovered that I had Uterine cancer. I had surgery to remove a tumor and a complete hysterectomy, thankfully it was not in my lymph nodes and was staged at 1a, however since it is a carcinoma sarcoma I will be having chemo starting on February 25 every 1x every 3weeks until mid June and 3 brachial radiation treatments in total. I found a great book which I downloaded called Chemo: Secrets to Thriving, which is so helpful . It was there that I found your website and your video. It has definitely helped me to begin to feel empowered and less afraid.

    Hi DonnaLyn,

    I have been looking through different internet sutures trying to get information, resources and support for my diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer. This is an overwhelming process! I’m on a very limited income (social security benefits) and have recently found out that I am going to have to drive about 30 miles (maybe a little more) once a week to start IV chemo. I will have to rely on others to get me to and from treatment. Do you have any advice on how I can pay these volunteers gas money for taking me to and from? I’m really struggling with this issue, not to mention the anxiety of treatment in itself. I would love to hear from you with any feedback you might have for me. Thank you so very much!
    Sincerely,
    Charla Meert

  3. Good – I should difenitely pronounce, impressed with your web site. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs as well as related info ended up being truly simple to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it in the least. Quite unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or anything, site theme . a tones way for your client to communicate. Nice task.
