FREE PROJECT and CRAFT INDUSTRY TODAY COVER

Today Ty and I will be at the Huntsmen Cancer Institute. I have absolutely NO IDEA what they will advise us to do. Ty and I talk and I know that he must follow his own heart in his treatment. I have been praying for his heart to feel comfort. I have told him that only HE knows what is best for him. Right now, he is enduring the graft vs host issues. These issues in combination with the recent news can drive you crazy as to knowing what is normal and what is not. The main thing is FOCUS on the MAIN thing. That is Tyler and this is what keeps me going. I know often in life we want to know WHY?  
                           WHY is this happening in our life...?
                                     
                                       WHY WHY WHY?????

 I met with my church bishop last night. He is just a wise and special man of God. We discussed how we will all have trials and some are horrible beyond horrible. He himself has lost a son. We will never know WHY the bad things happen. It is our faith that we don't become bitter or angry. We just know that we have to cherish every moment and day. We trust in God's plan and accept his will. 

So this morning, in meeting with the cancer specialists this leaves me with so many anxious emotions. This journey is not in our control. It never has been.  I just told my bishop last night that there are times each day when I feel like I can't go on. Is this normal? 

I feel like I have been knocked down so many times in this cancer journey and with so many other life challenges. When I feel knocked down... humbled on my knees and struggling... I pray.  I pray and pray and pray more. 

Then I remind myself to be strong, get back up like a WARRIOR. I can't and won't let these things make me bitter and I know I need to FIGHT with my husband. Trust me, it's easy to get depressed and not want to go on. I simply can't let negative thoughts get me down right now. My husband and children and business need me to keep positive and keep going. I find my positive outlook is one of the reason that my husband and family can look at each day with gratitude. I belief God is carrying us right now. 

One of the things I wanted to share with you today is a free project/workshop. This is my own personal book. It is one that I designed to tell my life story and who I am. This is with my collection- HELLO MY NAME is.

I decided to share this with you today in hopes you too will take the time to document and tell your story. More than ever, I know how important this is.

I found this while searching for something completely different. It's a post from a man on the American Cancer Society message board.It reminded me very much of your husband's situation.

I have only recently joined, but can offer hope for those who are diagnosed with this rare and aggressive cancer. The prognosis is consistently given as poor, although this is changing. In mid-2008, I was diagnosed with Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma - NOS. This cancer is rare, so there exists no standardized therapy to use against it. It is aggressive, and so time is of the essence in combating it. CHOP is often mentioned, or even administered, but PTCL, in the words of my oncologist, "laughs at it". But, there is nothing else to offer, is there?

Yes, there is, but it requires an oncologist with the confidence of experience in treating it. At that time, doctor decided on two different courses of aggressive chemotherapy, given back to back over four months. The first course was CHOEP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, etoposide, vincristine and prednisone), followed by GVD (Gemcitabine, vinorelbine, and pegylated liposomal doxorubicin). This course of therapy may not be appropriate for any other individual, since this cancer's immunophenotype can vary widely within its rather broad ("NOS") category.

In any event, my disease responded to the combination of eight anti-cancer drugs. I was blessed with what appeared to be a complete response after four months. I do not maintain that this was an easy course of therapy, but that it was a necessary one. It was discontinued at the end due to cumulative toxicity. A scan two months later showed that the cancer had come right back. At that time, I was offered the "salvage therapy" of in-patient ICE (ifosfamide, carboplatin and etoposide). This offered only limited effectiveness, since I had already received etoposide, one of ICE's components, as part of the primary therapy.

Providentially, at that time, two clinical trials were offered to me. One did not appear to be suited to my case, but the other seemed to offer promise. It was for a biological (non-chemotherapy) drug called Romidepsin (aka Istodax, Depsipeptide, FK228). It offered a high-30% chance of response. I entered into the trial and subsequent scans revealed that the disease responded well to it. The median time of response to the drug was 13 months. After that, half of the patients relapsed.

Well, to shorten this, it is now 33 months after I began treatment and I remain cancer-free. Doctor states that the prognosis improves with the passage of time. Quite a change from the "very poor" prognosis I received in February, 2009 after the immediate relapse. Romidepsin is now FDA approved for both Cutaneous T-Cell lymphoma (CTCL) and PTCL. Additionally, there is a cousin of Romidepsin (Belinostat) available, as well as a new chemotherapy drug, Folotyn (Pralatrexate).

None of these is a guarantee, and all have risks, but hope is on the rise.

Never give up!

Pam Makis said...

Thank you for the workshop! Hugs and prayers to you, Ty and your family. Never give up! God is in control.

Poppy Black said...

Oh my gosh this breaks my heart. There's no answer to the "why?" which is so hard. And when the treatment is as cruel as the cancer the battle is that much harder. You are amazing in the way that you carry on and continue to give so much to others when you could shrink away with the pain of it all. I have never been privileged to meet you, but I know that if I did I would probably want to be best friends! I hope you have a clearer path following the scary appointment. It sounds like you and Ty are a strong force ready to do battle yet again. Lots of love xxxxxx

Michelle said...

Sending you, your husband, and family lots of hugs. You all are in my thoughts.

Claire Spielman said...

My favorite quote" You never know how STRONG you are until STRONG is the only choice you have".
Wishing you strength and complete healing for Ty.
Hugs,

Susan said...

Teresa, you are an amazing warrior. We will continue to pray for Ty and for the entire family.

Kathy Jo said...

Praying for you, Ty and everyone in your family. For strength and peace. For hope. For a miracle. With a hug -
