I am so glad I found this site. I was diagnosed on May 1st with Stage T2b invasive urothelial carcinoma. I am otherwise in good health, have good insurance and a wonderful family and support network. I know how blessed I am to have all these things-- there were definitely times in my life when this diagnosis would have shattered me emotionally, financially, or both!
The irony is that what gives me strength is also my biggest worry. My daughters are seven and two. Is there anyone here who can share with me what it was like do undergo chemotherapy and radical cystectomy with small children in your life? I have so many questions about *everything*.
I'm so grateful to have access to this resource. Thanks so much, in advance, to those of you who respond with advice, and to those who keep this site up and running. Best of health and healing to all!
