    Well the research I've done on my lung cancer is that you have a 50% chance of it coming back anywhere in your body so when I was told I had cancer what do you what do you think when somebody says you have cancer you think you're dying well unfortunately it's going to get you eventually I've made peace with my family and I'm grateful for that because when my mom passed it was very unexpected and it was very hard I'm sorry to say but this this thing is a disease that is deadly and it's terrible you know and I'm so sorry you're going through this but you're not alone when I was on the cancer floor in the hospital for 12 days my nurse said Linda look at all these people they're on the same Journey you're on and that opened my eyes and it broke my heart so I have accepted it and I have to go for a biopsy tomorrow because they think it's in my thyroid so if you need to talk to me sweetheart please do I would love to hear from you God bless you
