I was diagnosed in 2000 but I started medications 5 years ago. Under false allegations, now my body is breaking down due to these doctors giving me all types of medications, which made me need them in order to survive now. I just feel like giving up. People are openly discussing every other disease and still so closed minded about AIDS.
When I was five, my parents took my sister and they told us that my mom had to go to the hospital for a few days. Come to find out later my mom had cervical cancer and they took out her womb & ovaries.
I was diagnosed with epithelioid sarcoma in my right foot. Due to the aggressive nature of this cancer, my oncologist told me that my best option for survival was amputation.
I was diagnosed at the age of 42 on May 12th, 2017 with stage 3 colorectal cancer. I had been experiencing "bowel issues" for almost 2 years prior to my diagnosis. Easily explained away as stress (I was in pharmacy school at the time). Also my younger sister had recently been diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. We had no previous family history of any types of cancer.
It was September 21, 2015, where my life completely changed I was 22 years old I was in a relationship with my boyfriend at the time, I loved my full-time job, and life was great!
Now I have to go back to my gynecologist since they found it early enough. Hopefully, it could be curable so that I don’t have to get another surgery because if I do this time they may remove the left ovary. I'm not giving up hope that they will save it.
