Welcome to Adult Bone Cancer Survivors

“When all seems lost and all seems bleak, do not lose hope and do not be weak

Look around and you will see, there’s so much more in life to make you happy.”

Welcome to Adult Bone Cancer Survivors – a page that celebrates the lives of people who have chosen to face this battle with so much hope, determination, and strength in their hearts.

This is an online resource for everything you need to know about Adult Bone Cancer – from symptoms, causes, diagnosis, treatment, and other interventions. The first step to defeating cancer is awareness about this life-threatening disease. In as much as we want to spare and protect our loved ones from this disease, there are various factors that determine our risks for acquiring this disease. It may be hereditary for some, acquired through lifestyle, and there are some things that cannot be explained even by science. But knowing more about this form of cancer equips us with the knowledge that we need on how to prevent or treat this disease.

After awareness, we recognize the value of proper diagnosis and treatment. There are different options available and we respect each and every approach that the patient wishes to take in fighting this form of cancer. Our organization keeps tracks of all establishments that cater to the needs of Adult Bone Cancer patients so that we know where to refer them should they ask us for assistance. The important thing here is that they are taking the steps toward rehabilitation and recovery.

We emphasize the word survival. Because we know that we can beat the big C. It is one of the challenges that some people go through and surpass. We want to do away with the victim mentality because it has such a negativity to it, a feeling of helplessness as if there is nothing more that can be done to transcend this ordeal in their lives. But there is something that can be done. There are different interventions out there that can help them stay on the road to recovery and wellness. They can get their lives back, maybe not in the previous state that they were accustomed to, but there is definitely a positive and bright future ahead.

Do you not believe us? Well, we feature true stories of strength and survival of our cancer patients as testaments to our advocacy that together, we can defeat Adult Bone Cancer and there is life after going through this ordeal. We have partnered with different government agencies, humanitarian organizations, health professionals, and religious groups to help us in our advocacy. We know that it takes a community to beat the big C and a loving community is an even bigger C that can truly defeat cancer. With the right support group, then our patients are sure to receive the love and care that they need as they go through this challenging period.

We hope you will support us just as A1 Garage did,  by helping us spread awareness about Adult Bone Cancer and how we can defeat it. Let us all spread positivity and healing to all.

Strength And Survival

A life-threatening disease such as cancer is difficult to deal with. It means giving up the things that you have become accustomed to, undergoing medication and treatment procedures, going in and out of the hospital, staying in bed, dealing with hospital bills, and so much more. And this takes so much of a person’s strength – physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, financially, and many other ways unimaginable to other people. That is understandable. It also makes their families and loved ones suffer.

Amidst these challenges, one might wonder where they draw their strength from. Do they hold on to their faith in God or any other higher being they believe in? How do they psych themselves to fight even if the medical results seem depressing? Where do they get the strength when everything else seems bleak and miserable?

We asked many of our cancer patients this question and it is inspiring how they manage to stay positive in spite of their illness. Randy says he draws strength from his family. He keeps holding on because he does not want his kids to grow up without a dad. Cari says she gets encouragement from her family and friends. She just cannot give up when all of them are rooting for her to survive this ordeal. She also says that her medical team offers invaluable support as they give her tender loving care whenever she is in the hospital. Rachel says praying to God and writing in her journal help her through her battle with cancer. She believes God will heal her and will hear all her prayers. Kevin says that talking about his illness helps him cope with cancer. He gets invited to give inspirational talks in different communities and he finds fulfillment and purpose in sharing his story with others.

In life, we all face different challenges and it is up to us if we will act like victims and have a defeated attitude or we will choose to be survivors and display a winning attitude.

Do The Happy Dance

I was diagnosed with having chondrosarcoma at the radius in 2009. I was 34 years old back then, with a loving husband and two kids, and a stable career. My husband and I had been married for five years and we had a smooth relationship. We had one little boy and one little girl, their ages were two years apart and their personalities were so different from each other but I loved taking care of them both. I worked as a preschool teacher. I loved teaching little kids. Whenever I was with them, I felt like a kid again and I actually discover a lot more things each time I taught them our lessons. So, I guess you could say that I was living my not so perfect but very happy and fulfilled life to the fullest.

It started when I felt sharp pains in my arms. I went to the doctor who advised me to get an x-ray done.  He was not satisfied with the result and asked an MRI procedure. When the results were out, the doctor said they found some masses in my arms and referred me to a specialist. The specialist doctor was the one who explained to me what those masses meant. I felt like my world was crumbling. I thought about my husband and my children. My children were so young to have a dying or a crippled mom. I thought about my students who were eagerly waiting for me to come back and resume our lessons. I just cannot bear the thought of leaving them all behind.

That was when I realized that I should not give up. My husband supported me all the way. I underwent therapy and medication to relieve the pain. I can say that I am in a better condition now and I thank God for giving me another chance at life. I always do the happy dance (while I still can) to pay tribute to our God who is the best doctor and healer.
