Why I created this site...

When I first found out about my cancer diagnosis last year, I started researching it on the web. I couldn't believe it.... of all the cancer info sites out there, I couldn't find any real information about my rare type of cancer.

My purpose in starting this blog, is to share my experience with battling Leiomyosarcoma with others. I plan on journaling about my drug treatment plans, experiences with treatment side effects and how I deal with those side effects. Plus, I will explain the natural remedies and other advice I have gained throughout the past year and a half.

Above all else, I hope that this blog will help other Leiomyosarcoma patients relate their experience to mine and know that they are not alone in fighting this rare disease.

I would also love to get support from other people going through this, and swap ideas and stories. There is always strength in numbers, and I know I am not alone in this.

Together, we can knock out this cancer.

I Googled Leiomyosarcoma and your blog came up. I am proud to say that at the age of 25, I am Leiomyosarcoma Survivor :) I am about to reach my 4 year remission mark and couldn't be happier. While I have a LOT of ongoing complications from cancer, I'm cancer free and that's what matters!
