    Janet: So sorry you are going through this difficult time and prayers that a treatment plan will be found that works for you and all others in this fight.  It is heartbreaking for me to hear stories such as yours because there is so little known about GCT. I will be 5 years cancer free on 8/19 and I don't forget how blessed I am...every single day. Your courage and will and desire to survive impacts me more...

      Belldian: I admire you so much for sharing your journey with the rest of us. I keep hearing that estrogen is a critical factor in GCT growth but your case seems to differ. Also, I am not clear on why the rate of reoccurances is so varied. I pray you find a plan that works!! Please keep us updated on your progress.  I pray for all of us but especially those of you battling GCT. May God bless all with healing and ...

        I am well; getting better physically. This year was a year of trying to improve my health. After getting my exam in Feb. 2011, my ob/gyn said I could now return for yearly checkups rather than 6 months.  Thank you to my Creator for continued healing. She also said the greatest gift I could give myself was to have gastric bypass, which I did in August. Recovery was progressing nicely until emergency appendectomy ...

        I am a blessed mother of four sons and one precious granddaughter. Although being diagnosed with ovarian cancer (granulosa cell tumor) in August 2007 changed my priorities, I have learned that the cancer does not define who I am and I refuse to be a victim. I married a wonderful man six months after my diagnosis and surgery; although we spent 10 years together before my diagnosis, my medical crisis brought us to the realization of how precious and fleeting time is. I have learned from everyone I have encountered on this journey. What is most difficult is meeting and knowing others who are suffering; hoping to give them some measure of comfort in some small humble way. I am grateful each and every day that my tests have indicated no reoccurance; the hard part is seeing others who are righting for their lives. We need to advocate for more research on GCT; so little is known about it and the treatment. I was told at my cancer treatment center that they were only "guessing" at how to treat GCT; utilzing the same treatment of carbo and taxol that is used to treat testicular cancer. God bless you all.
