How I'm Coping

Many people have asked me how I've handled cancer, having chemo, having an amputation, having diabetes, and then having cancer again.  
I tell them that I live life daily, and I have as much fun as I can.  I do things the way I've always done them.  I go to school, go to church, ride my horse, and play with my friends.  Nothing has changed in how I live my life.  

You have to look on the bright side of things, sometimes this is hard, but it is very important.  
I have a wonderful support system.  My family and friends are helpful and love to have fun with me.  They help me realize that life is important.  I rely on my spiritual beliefs, trusting in God, and I know that miracles happen everyday.

Yes, I've been told that my cancer is inoperable, and incurable, but I am fortunate to be included in an experimental drug program, using a new drug called Depsipeptide, so I am hoping that this works for me.

When you get a disease like this, you have to do whatever it takes to get better, whether it's spending a lot of time in a hospital, or getting an amputation, or receiving chemo - you just HAVE to do it.  Take every chance that comes your way to survive.  There are medical advances happening all the time, and because of this, more and more people are being cured of cancer.

So I will do what I have to do, and have as much fun as I can.  I have been asked if everything I've gone through is worth it.  You bet it is.
