Hey everyone,This is the very first time I am sharing my story- I don't know how to share but I'm trying tho. As  they asked me to be a voice. no...

I knew something was wrong. My doctor walked into the room and said “I don’t have good news for you.” I was diagnosed with Uterine Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare type of cancer.

As a fairly young mom of three I was terrified and I was sure there was no way I could endure the treatment that would come. I also have a terrible habit of tending to see only a negative ending.

Each round of chemo became more difficult not only physically, as one would imagine, but mentally as well. I began to lose the red hair that had always defined me.

During this time I was also getting quite large blood clots coming out when I was going to the toilet. The doctors decided to swab me and also gave me an internal and external ultrasound- the results to these all came back clear.

The chemotherapy physically destroys your body, while cancer itself mentally drains you.

The next few months my emotions and body took to to readjust, but I got back in the gym and started regaining my strength both physically and emotionally.

Please advocate for yourself! No one knows your body better than you do.

Cancer, chemotherapy and surgeries not only affect our physical self but emotionally I believe it’s much tougher. Pick people to be in your life who stand with you, who will show up in the darkness alongside you.

Where to begin...probably best at the start. As a 17-year-old, from a nice area & going to a good school everything was pretty much plain sailing....

I first learned that I had ovarian cancer when I woke up in a recovery room with a nurse dictating next to my bed. 28 year old female, malignant neoplastic ovaries. Prior to that very moment, I thought I was just having a cyst removed.

It was when I was about to leave hospital to return to normal life that they told me “Kristian, we have tested your specimen & found cancer” it was in that exact moment my life changed in a blink of an eye.

In November 2020 it will be 41 years since I was given 6 months to live, I was 28 years old then with two young children aged six and eight, no family to rely on to take care of my children when I died, and life couldn’t have looked blacker. I was divorced and the children’s father wasn’t interested at all.

Apparently, when life gives you lemon you are supposed to make a lemonade out of it but nobody tells us that when life gives you a malignant lemon, the lemonade making procedure is no less than a debacle.

Today, Rakesh is healthy and comes across as a normal 68-year-old man. He has made himself believe from the very beginning that he is not ill.

I am everything that a lung cancer patient probably is not. I am young, fit, active, a non-smoker even a vegetarian! But what I have is a rare form of cancer that only affects non-smokers.

I know I want to beat this cancer. I can and I will. I’ve done it before and I will do it again. I am a born fighter and that’s what keeps me strong and fighting. I will keep pushing forward no matter what.

My cancer journey was anything but easy. During my treatment, I met so many people who would come up to me and behave like I was going to die. Thankfully, I had the strength to stand up and walk through everything that life put my way.

A wrong laboratory report wasted six months of my precious time and left me with no option but a breast removal surgery which could otherwise have been a breast conserving surgery.

When 7-8 chemotherapy sessions were left, my husband suffered a heart attack. Doctors claimed that it was due to stress and anxiety.

I was busy helping other patients when life dealt me another blow. My husband was diagnosed with advanced stage pancreatic cancer.
