Excerpts From "Memoirs of Cancer" Book
"Linda has been in chemotherapy three different times, and went into remission for only a 2 week period. To date she has done a year total of chemo, and is still going. She lost her hair with the 2nd bout of chemo." Linda's diagnosis was Waldenstrom or WM Cancer.
"My cancer is everywhere, since it's in my bone marrow, but it has not gotten into my organs. I was taking oral chemo, and then came in for intravenous chemo and it took about 2 weeks to lose my hair. I'm not a very emotional person, but somewhere deep inside there was dread of what I was going to look like with no hair." Ann's diagnosis was Multiple Myeloma.
"Allen had his own suspicions that he had some type of health problem since he was continually losing some weight. 'I had lost a significant amount of weight. I knew something was wrong after I got the first blood test results. Whether I was thinking cancer or not, I can't remember, but I wasn't surpised because I knew something was wrong. My initial reaction, after I left the doctors office, was to prepare my friends and family,' Allen recalls." Allen's diagnosis was Multiple Myeloma.
"Chemotherapy treatments are scheduled in cycles, maybe every three or four weeks, with times in between for your body to recover. How many different assaults---er, treatments--will be required depends on several factors. Among them are the kind of cancer, the kind of drugs used; your age; your general health and your bodies response to the drugs."
