Staring Down Cancer

Running away

Have you ever felt like running away?  Not the way we felt when we were kids, but as an adult, just running away.

I was so despondent this week to learn that the Afinitor was not working, and my tumor markers had tripled.  I had a liver scan yesterday, but I don't really want to know the results.  

Cancer is so overwhelming.  I try to stay positive, but every now and then, I blow.  At times like this, going to a desert island to wait out the inevitable does not seem like an unreasonable idea.  I'll bet other women have done that.

I am worn out. My doctor is now giving me male hormones, which have been effective for some with estrogen-receptor-positive breast cancer.  He had the nerve to tell me there is a possibility I will grow facial hair. Did I really need to know that?

I am flying to New York to appear on 'Fox and Friends' on Thursday, and 'Huckabee' on Saturday.  I have exciting news to share about a nontoxic chemotherapy drug to be released this year.   Also, Stella & Dot Company has created two beautiful bracelets, a gorgeous scarf and other accessories to benefit the Noreen Fraser Foundation (which will receive 100 percent of net proceeds during the month of October, so I hope we sell a ton!)  

You can view these lovely items on the Noreen Fraser Foundation website, They make a beautiful holiday gift, take a peek!

I may be writing to you next week from an undiscovered island near Fiji!
