I have joined Sarcoma Foundation of America so that someday someone will discover a cure for Soft Tissue Sarcoma. As of now, it's often too progressed for a cure. Dangers are surviving the amputation/recovery, then two-, five-, and ten-year marks of hitting there without recurrence. In my case, I was at the two year mark this month; CT and then biopsy proved recurrence in a lung. I don't know how many have gotten one, or two or more recurrences, but I do know that of other types of Cancer, it has been fought - and won- from more than one time through it. I won't give up hope.
Right at two year celebrating of no return of cancer and just got hit with a bad CT report.
Surgery recomended as first step with Vandy drs. (after some cardio testing), oncologist says biopsy first. Approved the biopsy route - scheduled for tomorrow.
Made it hopping onto organ platform and bench at church yesterday and played the invitation hymn, then after closing prayer, played "The First Noel" with the chimes setting on organ. I must have stunned some of the congregation - they didn't sing the first verse of the invitation! It was really good to be up there playing again. My daughter Alexandra shares my amusement for performance entertaining.
