October is also liver cancer "awareness" month, who knew?

I recently came upon a website that I found very interesting for those of you out there in the collective cancer family (you know who you are).

It has got some really good resources there for those of us in need and, hey, lets face it we all have a need or two don't we? It is called 1 Up On Cancer and you really should give it a look.

It is chalked full of all the goodness we all so need such as resources on Freebies & Discounts for cancer patients to Tips on Nutrition and cooking for cancer prevention to some NON -CANCER humor to help put a little smile on your face when you most need it....like RIGHT NOW!

This is also a great site that I recently discovered called Is My Cancer Different? and why, YES it is, because we are all different and respond to the same thing in very different ways.  This site has videos that give some good but basic information (and that is good sometimes for us with chemo brain) about how your cancer (no matter what kind it is) is definitely different because you, my dear, are different.  It is also worth a look.

It is something I just couldn't keep to myself.

On the same note there are some really great bloggers out there that I also just discovered and I wanted to share the rest of these in the spirit of October being breast cancer awareness month.  Actually it is also LIVER cancer awareness month (did you know that?) and yours truly has liver cancer....Well actually it is specifically BILE DUCT cancer but because no one knows how to test for or discover it when it is actually in your bile duct it gets written off as being IBS for 15 years before they discover it and by that time it has metastasized to your liver and NOW it gets classified as "liver cancer" because there is no "bile cancer day or month" but anyway, I digress..... back to the great blogs as of late.

I highly recommend checking these out they are right on the money (no pun intended) and call it how they see it when it comes to breast cancer "awareness" and who is really racing to find a cure.  These ladies have all been affected with breast cancer, even metastatic breast cancer and `find no comfort in raising more awareness and ask instead that you give to organizations that really do contribute those dollars to finding an actual CURE for breast cancer.  Heck while we are at it lets also find one for cholangiocarcinoma, and in the meantime I will be trying my hardest to do the same.

Please give these wonderful sites a fraction of your time and consideration.  You will also be able to find them along with other wonderful blogs on my sidebar at the right. If I left anyone out I am sorry, there (thankfully and in a way sadly) are just too many of you great bloggers out there! If I do not have your link on my sidebar please contact me and let me know, I will gladly add it.

Blessings to you all and good health.

  1. Thanks for the links Laura. I'm headed there now.

  2. I decided to share this because i am so glad today and happy that i am alive to see another new day and not just that but also to share the goodnews of how i survived a deadly stage 4 cholangiocarsinoma (bile duct cancer). I was told by my oncologist that she had just 6 months left to live and i was so scared to lose my wife. I was lucky to contact Dr Mrs Aleta who i told all about it and she is the nicest person i have spoken to. She recommended a herbal medicine for her which she took that cured her in less than a month. Well for more info about the medicine and cancer treatment simply reach her on aletedwin@gmail.com she can help you too. Contact her for any form of cancer too.
