Hello Wordman and welcome to our family but sorry you had to join us. Sounds like your Congregation will have you listening to them now instead of them listening to you! It all helps and a good attitude is so important. Do you have pain and if so is it under control and where are you being treated. We are big fans of 2nd and 3rd opinions, very important with this CC. Can you tell us a little more about your Diagnosis and treatment? Sending you Prayers and best wishes and Be Strong! Looking forward to hearing more about your Journey.
Sorry you had to find us. This is a wonderful place for support and information. I think it’s great that you are able to continue to work: I imagine the shoe is often on the other foot, with people wanting to help you! Keep up your positive attitude, as it works wonders.
I returned to church just months before my diagnosis, and have since been rebaptized. It has been a source of comfort to me.
What treatment have you had? Please keep us posted and if you need anything, don’t hesitate to ask! Many of our “family” have a wealth of information.
Hello I was diagnosed in late January 2013, and have been fighting since that time. The cancer is in my liver we found it while searching for possible kidney stones because of pain in that area of my back. The CT scan showed tumors in the liver and the MRI found possible spots in each lung, on my neck, and on my spine at the kidney level. I’m 54 years old with my wife Jennie two wonderful kids college age.
I pastor a church in northeastern Colorado and have a wonderful congregation that loves me and is helping me and so far I’ve been able to continue working and have only missed preaching one Sunday because I had a fever and the Doctor wanted to administer IV antibiotics.
My job as I see it now is maintaining a good attitude as I must lead my family and my congregation through this thing.
