Hello Anon

Thank you for writing. I am so sorry you are dealing with so many health issues and without support.

It's advisable to heed your oncologist's advice regarding treatment. Even if surgeries remove all cancer seen on scans, chemo and/or radiation is often advised to make sure all the cancer has been removed. We cannot advise as to what is necessary for your recovery.

But support is very important. Various charities and community organizations offer free rides to and from treatment, as well as home care. Please ask your doctor's office for links to these organizations. Religious organizations can also help, regardless of any religious affiliation. Contact Volunteers of America, your doctors office and nearby churches for help if your choose to accept further treatment. Put an online advertisement in local communities to seek help. There are many community volunteers that would be happy to help you.

Please keep us updated.
