      Hi Nicole,

      Thank you and I wish you the best of recoveries. It has been a very emotional time so I am glad that there are people out there that understand what I am going through. The support I have received is amazing and I couldn’t ask for a better support team.

  2. Sending so many {{{HUGS}}} fellow survivor! I do know the feeling, I got a ‘terminal Lung Cancer that spread to your bones’ diagnosis in 2011 from a leading hospital in New York City who shall remain nameless as their negligence caused me pneumonia and them giving me too much anesthisia after an exploratory surgery nearly killed me (there is an open letter to them on my blog if you search the archives), and three top NYC hospitals and 7 years later my case is studied at Medical Conferences, I am a walking miracle!

    One thing you didn’t mention and I wonder how you fared – was the Medical Bills? I had insurance at the time (still do) and not all of it was covered and I am still drowning in medical bills and debt from trying to survive it all. It is one of the ugliest parts of it all if you ask me, just how much trying to survive the ordeal actually costs.

    And I lead a very healthy lifestyle and I do NOT smoke, like never even tried it, and grew up in a non smoking household so no one was able to figure this out.

    Glad I found you, Hopping on over from In Search Of Blog Squad 🙂

      Hi Tracy,

      I am so glad you were able to beat your cancer and I hope you have many many years of great health. My life changed drastically when I got diagnosed with cancer and honestly this has been the scariest time of my life. I cannot honestly answer about medical bills mainly due to the fact that I am still considered a “child” per the insurance my parents have. What I can tell you is that the hospital that I did my treatments through were very understanding and did anything to help my parents out including payment plans. I know how very expensive chemo treatments are but I am thankful for the help my family has received throughout this time.

      • It is so great that your parents were able to cover you under their insurance, the bills really are a never ending nightmare, the hospital being so understanding and making a payment must have been a tremendous weight lifted. It is a life changing diagnosis, ultimately it shakes up your life and you can’t go really back to who you were, but it makes who you become that much stronger! Keep sharing your journey, and know you are NOT alone! There are tons of us warriors out there, and I have learned that sharing our story makes it that much easier for when the next person gets that devastating diagnosis. For those late restless nights not wanting to burden the ones they love so they look online for survivor stories, I know I did.
