My name is Mary, and I have lung and spine cancer. I am lucky, the type of cancer I have is treatable with a special Chemotherapy drug called, Tarceva. So, after months of pain, my body has been given a reprieve.
I did not come back to life unscathed, the doctors waited to long to diagnose my condition. They did not expect me to make it out of the hospital. I lived, but was left with permanent nerve damage to my right hand, and nerve pain radiating down both my arms and my legs. I am truly thankful to be alive, and know it could have been a lot worse.
Now what? This blog is my person journey “life with Cancer?” What next?
