Just a little rant from over on Annika's Caringbridge site...

Hello out there--- It’s funny… I have no idea how many people still getnotifications when I post here. I find myself wondering if people question my decision to continue posting when my kid is currently healthy. How many people delete without reading? Are my posts seen as just another mindless interruption into an otherwise pleasant day? Maybe I am talking to some faithful CB friends, relatives and the occasional passerby. I find this slightly humorous,as if I have just realized that I have…See More

First Chemoversary

Apparently February will always be a month of memorable days for us from now on. I'm sure we'll get used to it, but this year holds many first anniversaries, so I find myself here - saying something about one:Then---Annika had her first infusions of chemo. They started at 8 pm. Both she and I were terrified staying in the hospital, but we tried not to act like it. A little bit of a 'if you look cool, you are cool' mentality??Cytoxin first, then Vincristine. Prednisone & Bactrim, pills she…See More

Cancer. When children hear the word, what do they think? It may be scary, but today, a diagnosis of cancer is not necessarily a death sentence. Nick News with Linda Ellerbee explores the world of kids who are living with cancer on The Face of Courage: Kids Living with Cancer, premiering Sunday, Jan. 24, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. The road these kids travel is not easy; it is pitted with fear, pain and loss. But also it is a road paved with hope, strength, courage and even humor. They…See More

Hello PAC2

My daughter is a recent (5 months NED) survivor. Her Burkitt's Lymphoma was at stage 2 when discovered. She had just two courses of chemo, and only required one infusion. We hardly had time to get used to being in treatment when it was over. Great news! Or could it be a little more complicated?I have found it difficult to share our story within cancer networks. I have, of course, but each time I am overwhelmed by a deep sense of guilt and shame. Huh? There is this feeling that we shouldn't be…See More

Hi Karla - Thank you for sending me the link to the 46 Mommas dialogue on PAC2. I've read through the posts and they are very helpful in understanding some of the history. I'm sorry there have been some frustrations and hope our recent conference calls have cleared things up a bit. Please let me know if you need anything else. Thanks again for everything! - Jane

My niece was diagnosed in Dec 08 with LDL lymphoma. Her last testing showed she was
cancer free with 18 months left of treatment to be sure it doesn't come back. God bless Karla and I wish you all the very best. Let's kick cancer's butt once and for all.
