    New Here

    Wow! I wish I had found this forum a year ago.
    On Nov. 29, 2016, I went in to remove what was supposed to be a borderline or benign tumor on my uterus but it turned out to be Stage III Adenosarcoma. I went through 5 months of chemo, a month of daily radiation and then 3 rounds of brachytherapy. I lost every stitch of hair down to the last eye lash. There were days I couldn't eat, nights I couldn't sleep, times I laughed and times I cried. It was quite a roller coaster ride! Now I'm looking back on the wave I just rode in on and I made it! By God's grace, I'm alive, my hair is growing back, and I hope to be able to encourage others on here.
