How I survive cancer: 

Lol...don't know yet. Still fighting...never ending story I guess. So far I feel well after first surgery in June 2008, then different treatments. Second surgery Aug.2009. Officially first time diagnosed Mai 2008, but other Dr. got path report telling him Carcinoid tumor in colon, but never told me. lawyers taking care right now. PRRT treatment with LU-177 in Bad Berka Germany. Since Nov. all pills in the trashcan and since this week Monday I'm back at work fulltime since 1/2 year off work and on STD and LTD. Glad to have some of my life back.

How I fight for a cure: 

Collecting information. Sharing with others. Maintaining our own Noids network. Guilda's Club Louisville, KY Keeping updates with my Dr.'s about treatments in Nebraska,Kentucky,Thueringen/Ger.

My caring words of encouragement: 

I have a dream about cure for cancer will not be much longer "not possible". I hope we all together can fight healthcare providers, FDA, Pharma Industry and Hospitals to work better together. There is much more in the background going on about finding a cure for cancer. Just think about a cure will be found? Who's loosing profit? We need to change this into profit for patients. You get it? Let's start yesterday.....*smile*... Regards Ralph
