    Hello Hubbers, welcome to a new week of our weekly HubMob.  A big thanks to all the HubMobsters who participated in last week's Vintage HubMob.  You can find all the week's hubs in rmcrayne's  round up hub Everything Vintage.

    Three months ago we had a Breast Cancer awareness HubMob.  This week we are going to widen the topic to cancer in general while still focusing in Breast cancer awareness in an effort to support our friend and fellow Hubber Cindyvine.   As some of you might know, Cindyvine is going to have a mastectomy on the 11th February.   We would like to let her know through the HubMob that we'll be thinking about her and her prompt recovery dedicating this week's HubMob to her.

    Some ideas for hubs on Cancer awareness are:
    Breast cancer
    Living with cancer
    Causes and treatments of cancer.
    Alternative/Nontraditional Cancer Treatments
    Different types of cancer
    Cancer Exams and Detection
    Cancer Treatments
    Support for Families Dealing with Cancer

    To enter your Hub in the HubMob please follow the instructions below.    

    1.  START YOUR HUB CLICKING THIS LINK.  Choose the "Answer this Question" green button.  Choose the MAKE A HUB ABOUT IT option. 

    2. Include the HubMob RSS Feed in your hub: … ew&rss  For more information on how to add the RSS feed to your hub you can click here

      I wrote about my mother and her battle with lung cancer. It's still semi-recent (4 years ago) and a topic that I keep turning back to in my writing as a coping mechanism.

      Thank you in advance for reading smile

        Cindyvine - I hope you are recovering from your ordeal yesterday.
        The first thing my sister said after her double M operation 10 years ago was "Could someone please get this elephant off my chest?" She is doing great now, 12 years after her initial life changing diagnosis. Her depression, shock, denial and disbelief has turned into gratitude and has changed all our lives.

        My best wishes for a speedy recovery.

        My second HubMob entry. Even though no one in my family (thank goodness) has experienced breast cancer, I have several of the risk factors for the disease, and it never hurts to read up on things you can do to prevent getting cancer, especially when you can do something as easy as add  a few things into your diet. So, that's why I decided to research and write this hub - to help myself and others be healthier. … ast-Cancer

        Hello all.  This is my first post.  Cancer Awareness.  A topic I am very familiar with.
        My whole family have just had the worst year we've ever know.  My parents are in their 70's and are the centre of our family universe.  Everyone still gravitates to their house.  Quite a gathering now with grandchildren and great grandchildren.  Dad survived Prostate cancer when he was in his sixties. It was caught in the poo test requested by his local doctor.  He had no symptoms.  He has been cancer free since then and is now 78.  Mum had the usual ailments you expect in an old woman.  High blood pressure, cholesterol, aches pains and gastric reflux.  They used to live in Echuca but moved to Bendigo to be nearer us.  That's about a hours drive.  They changed doctors a few times trying to find one they liked.  Eventually they found a lovely softly spoken Asian lady doctor who mum liked immediately.  On assessing all her medications from all the different doctors she discovered multiple prescriptions of different medications for the same complain.  So in her infinite wisdom she decided to start at the beginning and do an independent assessment of mum's health.  Of prime concern was mum's indigestion which she has been seeing the doctors for nearly two years about.  A CT scan was ordered.  No one was expecting anything bad.  I can tell you picking up the phone and asking your mum how her tests were and having her tell you she has terminal cancer whilst sobbing on the phone is the most heart breaking experience I have ever experienced.  I of course rushed to her house and immediately assured her that we would fight this thing and we would never give in.  Speaking to the doctor did not bring any relief.  Stage 4 cancer of some description had invaded mums abdominal cavity.  It took months and months of tests, biopsies, and constant phone calls on my part to get anywhere with the doctors.  Finally after two long months they decided mum had ovarian cancer stage 4.  Now if you google that the information is bleak, very.  Pallative care is what is recommended.  I became the organiser.  Mum just shut down and prepared to die.  Dad would lay his head on my shoulder and tell me what was he going to do without her.  They had been married over 55 years and had been together since they were 14 and 14.  I remained strong in public and cried myself to sleep at night.  Even my husband didn't know how hard it was to remain positive.  Finally it was decided a six months course of chemotherapy would be required.  Now we are talking stage 4, this was going to be an all guns blazing affair.  Mum doesn't do sick.  Never really been ill in her life.  I sucked it all up and prepared for the battle of the lifetime.  Mum battling the disease and me battling mum to prevent her giving up.  I can't tell you how many times I had to be cruel to her, to the point of her crying because I would not let her give in.  They will give you a list of possible side effects the chemo will have on you.  Well not to be outdone my mum had them all.  Every single one.  Two different types were given every 21 days one following the other.  They gave her heart palpatations, dreadful pain in her feet, from nerve damage.   Painful injects and tablets had to be taken at precisely the correct time.  Temperature control was paramount.  Mum lied, didn't take here pills and was generally a dreadful patient.  The chemo was killing her as effectively as it killed the cancer.  After the first session everything was fine.  Then her hair started to fall out so we shaved it off.  Watching someone you love suffer from the most dreadful nausea and pain is horrendous.  Each session made her worse.  By session three she would be in hospital from day five to thirteen or fourteen.  Sometimes blood transfusions were necessary.  Her veins collapsed and she looked like a pin cushion with bruises all over her from the blood taken and injections given.  I would spend hours at the hospital every day between work to keep her going.  Dad and I started a tag team.  And still I would not let her quit.  Somewhere, somehow something was batting in our corner.  Her tumor count went from over 5000 to 1300 in three sessions.  We maintained a balancing act.  The chemo took a horrendous toll on her body and we were always mindful that she virtually had no immune system left.  By the sixth session the count was down to 13.  The doctors were to say the least amazed.  Mum has been slowly improving ever since.  There is no sign of the cancer at the moment, she is in remission.  It's Feb 14th today and she gains energy every day as well as her hair.  It will take another six to twelve months before she is fully recovered from the dreadful damage done by the chemo.  We'll worry about the future when it comes.  Right now mum is well, we all couldn't be happier.  It just shows you that no matter the prognosis, don't give up.  The human spirit is unmeasurable.  I hope to have mum for many years to come but we will just take one day at a time.  We have won this battle, I am sure there are more to come.  I just wanted to share this with everyone to show you that no matter what the prognosis, doctors are not always right.  Miracles do happen, have faith, lots of support and don't give up.
