Hello iAmKatieBrown,

Though advances in cancer detection and treatments, of all types, seemed to move at a snail's pace, there have been moves in the right direction. My mother was diagnosed with leukemia over 19 years ago. She lived only 15 months following diagnosis. At that time, chemotherapy was administered as an inpatient.

Four years ago, I was diagnosed with olfactory neuroblastoma, a rare form of brain cancer. My chemotherapy was administered as an outpatient.

I have been in remission for three years. A lot has changed for all of us who have been diagnosed with cancer, and those who have loved ones with the diagnosis.

Keep up your efforts. You are touching many lives. We must all have hope for better cancer treatment options.
