Never having been sick in my life, I was shocked to find a lump in my right breast in June 2008 and was diagnosed with Stage 1 Grade 3 Triple Negative Breast Cancer. I had a lumpectomy in June 2008 and the aggressive cancer spread to lymph nodes requiring a second surgery in...

There are so many C words that make your heart flutter like...couture, cashmere, or better yet closet! But somehow in my 30's, I had completely forgotten about other C words-words that make your heart feel like it has stopped. Words like carcinoma, cancer or chemo. I am a TV personality, producer and designer. I am the creator of an illuminated clutch line called www.solasfashion.com. As a...

I was diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer in 1997.  I had a total thyroidectomy along with some lymph nodes removed.  In 2000, I had a radical right neck dissection and had more lymph nodes removed.  After my TT, over a period of about 4 years I had 5 radioactive iodine treatments.

My name is Ron Sparks and I have cancer. Sounds like a 12-step program, huh? Being diagnosed with cancer has changed my life. It's been an incredible journey and it's not nearly over yet. Not even close. As a writer, I have a cathartic need to express myself when I am in trouble - so it's no surprise that I blog profusely about my cancer and my recovery. I was diagnosed with squamous...

Three months after my first child was born, I was diagnosed with sarcoidosis, an autoimmune disease. Although sarcoidosis spontaneously remits in many cases, I developed a chronic form of the disease in multiple organs-- my brain, heart, lungs, liver, cranial nerves, lymph nodes, and bones. Becoming chronically ill at the same time that I am learning the ropes of motherhood has been like...

I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism in 1990 after countless efforts with my doctor to test me. She did not want to test me because I was not overweight.  But I already started to gain weight. After testing me we discovered that I was hypothyroid. I started on medication. I still did not lose weight after months of being on the medication.  I found an endo about a hour away from me...
