This one was a mess of tangled intestine, scar tissue forming joins and the rock-textured cancer consuming a section of my bowel.They couldn't operate as I was too malnourished plus the likelihood of it working at all was too slim and I ran the risk of my final days being in a recovery bed in agony instead of with family, palliated.This was the moment that they told me it was a 'terminal incident' and both my professors had to look me in the eye and tell me I was going to die.I was left in a complete state of shock - now the vomiting was stabilised I felt fine, how could this be?Advice on all aspects of cancer as well as coping skills are shared and discussed in caring environment.Freedom Survivors meet every 3rd Thursday at pm at the Cancer Society headquarters.This community is quickly growing, forcing many to deal in isolation with issues specific to this age and stage of life: dating with cancer, disclosure to potential employer, long term insurance issues, moving back home, loss of fertility, or having to quit school or a newly launched career.
Side effects could affect the way you feel about yourself. Discuss reasons that they or you might be acting differently.
Freedom Kids will have one social each quarter, ending the year with “Freedom Kids Christmas Party”!!!
For those living with cancer, changes that affect roles and relationships in your daily life may be especially challenging.
Diversity and access are very important to our support group.
Our support group is geared to sick children however, welcomes participation by parents and siblings.
