That it is a thief.

That I am stronger than cancer; it may take my life but it won't take my joy.

Homemade meals with powerhouse, immunity-boosting, cancer-fighting food. Also Cannabis Oil, Vit C tabs, Maitake mushrooms, phytoplankton, olive oil, coconut oil, ACV, curcumin, Artemix, IP6 tabs.

Left side (on top of rib), lung (2 x nodules which eventually increased to 9 nodules). 10 days before I went #OTRB cancer was found growing in another site - my pelvic bone - which became painful and I was gently euthanised.

Yes. 3 weeks after the first round of 5 x chemo infusions were completed.

Swelling above left carpal, limping. My vet had just lost her dog to osteosarcoma so took no chances - straight in for an xray, which suggested it could be bone cancer, so immediately referred to a Jindalee Vet Oncologist (Dr Terry) who took bone biopsies and did body scan. Scan showed no spread of cancer. Results received 16 April 2018 showed that it was bone cancer; shoulder and leg amputated 17 April 2018. Surgery site became infected, which delayed chemo for a week. Chemo finished 27 July 2018. Unfortunately cancer returned - 3 weeks after chemo finished my Nan found a small lump on top of rib. Scan showed 2 nodules in my lung, too. Lump on side removed surgically (vet said it just "peeled" away, not attached to the rib). Had further chemo infusion (Doxorubicin) which finished 19 October, plus "home" chemo/meds (continuous). Scan while getting Doxorubicin showed lung nodules halved in size. Next scan on 21 December 2018 showed 1 lung nodule the same size, the other nodule had further reduced a little. Still on home chemo/meds. Next scan in February 2019.

Left front leg and shoulder amputated on 17 April 2018.
