    My mom recently found out that she has uterine cancer and needs to undergo a hysterectomy (We're not sure if any other treatment will be needed until after they perform the surgery). A few years ago she also had breast cancer, and it is thought that the Tamoxifen that they prescribed to her to help prevent it from coming back that she had been taking ended up giving her the uterine cancer- which were pretty angry about obviously.

    Are you or do you know anyone currently dealing with cancer as well?

      I am sorry to hear about your situation. That can be really stressful for everyone but hopefully they are getting her situation under control.

      A few years ago my aunt was diagnosed with uterine, bladder, colon and ovarian cancer. She had apparently had bleeding for years but no insurance so she didn't not take care of it until she started passing out from blood loss. She essentially had to have everything in that area removed. At the time we didn't think she was going to live. She was in and out of ICU for months. However, seven years later she is doing well. She still has cancer but she's happy and mobile and things are looking really good right now. I thin she's the happiest that I've seen her since I was born actually.

      So anyway, if things seem really bad at any point it doesn't have to mean the worst. Good luck!

        Hi hlruther,

        I'm glad your aunt is doing good now. My mom also started bleeding a lot so that's how she knew something wasn't right and went to see the doctor. Hopefully she caught it early enough though and won't need any additional treatment. I guess we'll see.

        Best of luck.

    Mine is a different story, I have an aunt on the paternal side who died of cancer.  Her cancer was spreading from his breast to his mouth. She undergoes a lot of chemo therapy but to no avail her body succumb to it. It is just so sad.
