Today Anita received biopsy results which confirmed her suspicions - the mesothelioma has returned. However, although she has several tumours, they are all small and confined to her right chest area. Even so, she is looking on the bright side, enjoying the spring sunshine down under and the warmth of the sun on her skin. After reading her blog today, I was so impressed by her positive attitude and determination to fight the disease that I have copied a paragraph below to share with you. Quite an inspiration!
.....There are new clinical trials for Mesothelioma starting up all the time and sooner or later a cure will be found. All I have to do is to hang in there. Simple really.
For anyone in this predicament it is important to keep things in perspective and stay focussed on the positive. Medical science is moving exponentially toward cures for all cancers. The future really is looking bright we just have to stay focussed, do our best to keep our immune systems strong and try to remain positive. As I've said before, while there is life there is hope.
