Christine And Her Tumor

I write the words, but the cat has full editorial control.

In the fall of 2012 I was diagnosed with a desmoid tumor. Over the course of the next four years I had one surgery, one month of physical therapy, one recurrence, one year of Tamoxifen, three months of Gleevec, one year of Nexavar, and countless MRIs and doctor visits. I can happily tell you my tumor is finally dead. The lessons I’ve learned, though, are very much alive. I hope to keep it that way by documenting them here with just enough sarcasm and profanity to make it fun. I hope you enjoy reading my posts as much as I enjoy writing them.

If you want to know more about desmoid tumors you can find information at:

If you have been diagnosed with a desmoid tumor and are in need of support you can find it at the Facebook group:

  1. The Avett Brothers are from North Carolina. In fact, they would make a great road trip companion. Start with the old albums (try “Emotionalism”, nearly damn perfect) and then move to the newer Rick Rubin produced stuff.
