Instead of doing the #tbgratitudechallenge for 30 days, I decided to share what I learned during my cancer journey. Payback. Trying to show my gratitude to all of you in a different way. And who knows, it just might save a life.
LIFESAVING BIOPSIES: Fear No Needles
Blood can detect many things, but in my case, when chemotherapy was
failing me, we turned to a core biopsy. While you are awake but numbed
(lidocaine), a needle probe extracts tissue. That determined I now had a
second cancer, Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma, a killer cancer.
Aggressive, fast growing. Fatal if not defeated. Without the core
biopsy, I would not.be.typing.this.
