Chin up and goodluck with the rest of your treatment. I am new to the Cancer Connection also and just wanted to let you know that your not alone. My mother has just been diagnosed with secondary Endometrial Cancer and this is her 6th lot of cancer!!! Over the past 20 years she has battled and come through triumphantly. Mum has a famous saying that I think helps her get through it all - "There are always others out there worse off than me!" I know it probably seems useless saying something like this when you are going through all of the treatment and the sickness and you just feel horrible but you just have to look past it and hold onto hope that it will all be ok!!! Goodluck and keep on battling!!!

Just logging in for the first time and wanted to say Hi! This is my first time "blogging" also - so I am not sure what I am supposed to do.
My mum has just been diagnosed with her 6th cancer!!! I just don't know if this one will be the last. She stays so positive for all of us but I just don't know how she keeps going.
This time the doctors seem to think she has secondary Endometrial Cancer? They are just not sure and cannot find a primary source. I wonder if anyone else out there has had an experience with this cancer and if you have any helpful information.
Mum has had 2 seperate lots of Breast Cancer, Cancer of the Uterus, 2 melanomas and now this. What more can a person go through?
I have a huge family history of cancer and the BRCA1 gene (Breast Cancer) is in the family - I have been lucky enough to miss the gene but some of my cousins have it.
I just wanted to touch base with people who have had a large family history and who need to talk just as much as I do.
Thanks for listening (reading) and hope to chat soon.
