I lost my son Shane to Cancer
Optional question where you can tell us more about you, your child, your reasons to be here, or simply introduce yourself.
I am Sheryl a single parent of 4 precious children, and the blessed grandmother of 7 children. This is what my life revolves around. My only son Shane died July 24, 07 at 7:10 pm. He was 25 years old. Shane had noticed a lump in his neck, in Feb 06, and he didn't have insurance and Doctors gave him pain meds. and antibiotics and told him not to worry, pain was a good sign so we don't have to biopsy. In June 06, the doctor wanted to see him again, it had moved under his arm, the doctors again said no worry we can wait for your ins. to kick in and then do a biopsy, not to worry. On July 19. 06 my son was diagnosed with HL STAGE IV. To make a long story alittle shorter, my son was misdiagnosed. He accutally had Gray Zone Cancer. It is HL, NHL, and DIFUSSED LARGE B-CELL all over lapping eachother. And due to this mistake the wrong chemos were given for 10 months, causing my son to not be able to have the chemos he needed due to what the other hospital ran. The thing that is hard to live with is Shane started to do so good, and almost made it to stem cell, But after a massive chemo the doctors gave him to high of doses of pain meds, without being under pain management, and the manufacturer of his heart med, mismanufactured it, and my sons heart rate dropped so low he couldn't fight off the pain meds. and died . I tried to do CPR and everything and I couldn't save my child. That pain hurts so bad. He always thought mom could fix anything, but I couldn't fix this. I just want to help in any way I can to make people see that we have to pull together to fight this and for people to realize, that even if you don't have a child fighting this monster, that I don't wish this pain on anyone , but this monster can attack anyone, so hold onto the precious moments you have, cause we don't know what the next moment will bring. Really I just want people to talk to that understand me and don't think I'm crazy. HUGS!!!!

Dear Sheryl, This should never have happened. It makes me so sad and angry that Shane had to die . My son was misdiagnosed also and we were sent to NYC Columbia Presbyterian where he wound up on a respirator. Thanks to God and the nurse we were told to call Sloan-Kettering. They rescued him even though we were out of network. We are still battling the insurance companies. We were soooo blessed. Your story needs to be told to Congress. This problem is everywhere. I am so sorry for your loss. I am sending hugs and prayers to you. kathy biz

Good Evening,
First I want to say how sorry I am for the loss of your precious child. How life changes, forever. Sadly I do understand the pain of your loss, as my daughter lost her battle in April of this year. I am reading everything I can get my hands on, to try to cope. If we can make a difference somehow, somewhere, that is my hope and my prayer.
