I have no family, i was abandoned as a child, i was adopted, then when i developed cancer i was abandoned again, when i was told by my adoptive father he had filled his obligation to me already. So without my true friends who for no other reward than a thank you go out of their way to help me, with life, a place to stay, a way to the doctor, they go to the store for me, for i can barely walk. by the way i have rectal cancer, and the radiation therapy was to much. It was to much radiation for my body to handle, my groin and buttocks are a mass of swollen bleeding scar tissue now, 4 years and it still dose not get better, i think actually worse, maybe i just do not handle it as good as i did 2 or 3 years ago, my life is spent trying not to move now, i was a tree topper in WA, State before this. Anyway I have been staying in a friends house in Hawaii since hurricane Katrina flooded my trailer in Mississippi with 6 feet of water. But I know I have worn out my welcome here, and must leave, plus the doctors here say i need to go to a bigger hospital to get help that they can not give here on the island, lol. Bad when the best hospital on Oahu Hawaii can not help you. So I head back to my trailer on Tuesday, my friend said it is dry and most of the mold is dead now. I am so lucky to have a few good friends for without them i probably would be dead. I wish to get well so i can repay their kindness. Then I can die, I hope to repay them before i die, for if rolls were reversed I do not know if I could do what they have done. May god truly bless them for they are angels on earth. i would not want to face the road ahead without them at my side. Hopefully things will be better in Mississippi for me this time, I will go to the University of south alabama hospital, maybe they can fix me, lol. May you be a friend to someone in need today.

I'm sorry to hear about your story. I could not have imagined myself if I were at your situation. But, knowing that you're able to surpass all those hardships, still, you are there, living and breathing the wondrous of life. And I must say I admire you for I believe that despite of all your endeavors, you became a lot stronger in dealing life's situations. I'm also glad knowing that you have recognized the importance of your friends and the people who contributed much for you to become a better person. Indeed, friends are not only angels but they are gifts from God. :)

yes how very true they are gifts from god. I have never thought of that, but when i could not on my own they were there and did for me what i could not. That is so true, and it helps me to see that god hears my prayers and dose provide for me. my God bless you and your family.

I can't feel bad for you. It sounds like your a strong person going through hell. I know it's hard to deal with alone. I know someone in NY going through the kemo. She is not doing to well. I will be sending her a bottle of juice. Maybe it will help her for a week. I think your doing the best you can already. I am not going to even think of how bad you must feel. Your adoptive father must have run out of love for you. he did not do the right thing at all. He took the responsibility to have you for life. I am glad to hear your not feeling depressed. I will see If I can send you a free bottle of this company juice I work with. So far it has helped plenty of us. Go to this site and read. Then contact me for the bottle. I am not looking for you to join. Just to try and feel better. http://www.monaviemoms.com

Thank You for Your thoughts. Life is quite an interesting bundle of choices, and chance happenings all rolled into one. I have one more rough road to travel this week.That is to get back to Mississippi, more and more road blocks appear with each passing day. Looks like I will be past flat broke when I get there. Well it is time to start over.

Your story is very sad. I'm sorry that you have cancer. What a terrible disease. I am also thankful that you have great friends to help you through this. For without friends we really are nothing. I hope that the hospital and the doctors will be able to help you- at least ease the pain of everyday life for you. Someday maybe you will be able to repay those friends. Maybe you have already! Friends do not expect things in return for being there. After all that is what friends are for- Good luck to you!
