Thank you for responding. I have a wonderful close-knit family that has always been supportive of each other. I stand in awe of the support I have received from my co-workers. I work midnights @ the Post Office. During heart surgery & recovery I was off work for 4 months and not a day went by that I did not hear from someone in one way or another. My husband and I attend a Carcinoid Cancer support group once a month. There are just a handful of us but we keep each other educated and keep in touch when someone is going through a procedure or just down. Mentally & emotionally I am great - I have my moments as does everyone - but I plan on staying strong and fighting with everything I have to prolong the inevitable. Yesterday, July 01, I had a SIRShere procedure done - shooting glass beads full of radiation into blood supply of liver tumors in hopes of slowing things down. I am scheduled for 2nd
procedure Aug.11th. I have high hopes that this will help - I will try anything at this point to slow things down. From day 1 I started my own
researching on the Internet, books and any thing I could lay my hands on.
Most of the time we are educating the medical field and others of the cancer as most have never heard of it. My goal is to bring awareness to
others so that if ever needed - they can be diagnosed a lot sooner.
