Re: Desperate for help

Oooh I've actually been wanting to make my own natural ginger ale for a while. I think I'm gonna try and make her a batch.

Re: Desperate for help

I think standard chemotherapy is nonnegotiable right now since her doctor is one of the best in the country. At this point looking for things to help in addition with that. Holistic ways of calming the stomach during chemo, something good for nerves, etc?

Re: Desperate for help

Oh yea, I am in total agreement. I guess what I meant is that her life plans are going to have to totally freeze for a few years at an age where things are meant to moving forward very quickly. Which really sucks, but is, of course, 100% worth it.

Re: Desperate for help

Update: The doc is giving her the first round of chemo Saturday and she'll be coming home Tuesday. It's some crazy aggressive mega chemo that some Italian oncologists discovered and according to the doc most oncologists wouldn't even know about it so I hope that means it specifically tailors to my f...

Re: Desperate for help

She is finally most of the way healed from post-op (we've been at a stand still waiting). She actually just arrived in Houston a few hours ago and has her first appointment at MDA tomorrow, so until then we are all still really in the dark. :( Thankfully I set up a gofundme for her that was pretty s...

Re: Desperate for help

They prepped her for surgery to remove the affected part of her colon and that's when they realized it was everywhere and it was inoperable, so as of right now she can eat anything. I might have a hard time convincing her to change her diet because there is a significant chance that once she gets to...

Re: Desperate for help

Thank you all so much. I understand how difficult that might be to organize, so don't stress too much over it but any prayers would be appreciated.

Desperate for help

Hi all, it has been a while since I've posted here. I feel a bit ashamed that I've returned to this lifestyle and community only in the face of tragedy, but here I am. My best friend has been diagnosed with colonic mucinous adenocarcinoma, in other words, a type of colon cancer. She is only 19, and ...
