My mother is surviving it, five years clear of cancer, my father is fighting it, I have an aunt that just passed and an uncle that passed many years ago

Help with money, so I can continue to live independently and help raise my five year old daughter

Tried marijuana. Had no effect, or very little

Lymph node in neck, brain

Money, lots of money. I haven't been able to go back to work full time, and disability isnt much

Banner University of Arizona Cancer Center

Laughter. Laughter makes everything easier to deal with.

Yes. It came back once so far in my brain

Painless mass under jaw, likely lymph node. Fatigue. Flu like symptoms at growth. 4cm tumor under jaw and 4cm in left frontal lobe.

Yervoy after neck surgery, it didn't keep it from entering my brain. Started Keytruda after brain surgery and am keeping NED after that.

I'm just trying my hardest to stay independent, but it's hard to make ends meet sometimes. I love my house, and my daughter loves it as well. I'm just trying to keep it so I can still raise her here until I get too sick that I can't anymore. I want her to have good memoriesof us.
