"I was only 39 and my life was pulled out from beneath my feet!"
It’s about time metastatic had it!!! Education, funding and awareness.
My world was rocked when I received my diagnosis. I had no idea in which the world I was being thrust into. I am in the “de novo” group being in the 6% who are diagnosed metastatic. I was only 39 and my life was pulled out from beneath my feet!
I have recently started a blog in hopes to help others living with this disease and I hope you find it entertaining and honest, but most of all, I hope my message of hope and awareness comes through.
Thank You for reading and considering me! Fight on, lifers!!

“Mr. Marcus, you have kidney, lung, and brain cancer. Stage 4. We are going to monitor you for the next 24 hours but there is not much we can do for you here. You need to go home and start making arrangements. At most, you have two years to live.”
I had a red circle on the right side of my breast, and I had lost twenty pounds despite the fact that I was not on a diet. When I went to the doctor their tests couldn’t find anything wrong, so I told them to check out this red spot.
My husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC). He had a total left nephrectomy on our 35th wedding Anniversary on Sept. 10, 2012. At that time there was no treatment that was available.
