I went through radiation July 2, 2004. I went into St. Francis Hospital for what I thought was routine back surgery that had tumor removed and ended at 19 days because my lungs filled up with fluid and then I had blood infection and have been going to chemo every since. The cancer just keeps moving around but I’m still here. I have custody of my five year old grand daughter, raising her. I have an excellent support group my husband.
