Gastric cancer & End Stage Renal Failure



I'm a 36 year male who has had end stage renal failure for the last 20 years and been on dialysis for the same time. I was just recently diagnosed with stomach cancer early December of last year. 


To be honest it didn't really come as a shock to me coz I had been feeling sick for a year. Hit my family hard especially my 2 older sisters who have been awesome and so have my parents. 


My question is has anyone on this forum ever had renal failure and living on dialysis been diagnosed with cancer? Also, how they went undergoing chemo treatments and doing dialysis at the same time?


Any advice or opinions would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks 👍
