My name is Colin and I was diagnosed with bowel cancer last new years day. I have been on chemo since Feb 2007. The cancer actually spread to my liver but only a tiny bit. The chemo seems to be keeping things under control. The basic thing is to be positive - never give up. Let people see that you are upbeat. That will help both you and them to have good discussions about problems. If there is anything specific that you wouldlike an answer on feel free to contact.
Regards Colin.

The American Cancer Society has a Chat and boards under the name Cancer Survivors Network. I used it constantly during my cancer treatment and have made some wonderful lifelong friends. WebMD also has a Cancer Support Board that I'm also a part of. Both are wonderful.

Try Planet Cancer here:

This is also a great organisation, they're very kind & caring, perhaps give them a call!

Go to: http://www.imtooyoungforthis.org/ (I'm too young for this...) It is a great sight and has lots of fun shows and boards. I'm sorry you're part of the "cancer club." I hope things are going well for you.

You can also try CommuniCancer.com

Contact The American Cancer Society. They can put you in contact w/local suport groups in your area. Mabe even your local hospital. Hospice, They are an organization which helps people in end stages of death, and they deal with alot of cancer patients.

The American Cancer Society has wonderful discussion boards online. Your local hospital will most likely also have cancer support groups which are invaluable sources of comfort and understanding.

There are online forums for many types of cancer. I found them invaluable. Try a google search.

I only have experience of breast cancer forums, but many of those have a board for younger people, probably other cancer forums do too

I know how you feel. I'm a teenager who was diagnosed with cancer when I was 13. One of the best places is the hospital you are being treated at. They will have a lot of resources you and your family can use. I would suggest you ask one of the nurses or someone next time you are there. Maybe even just ask one of the other patients if they want to talk. While I'm not currently going through chemo, I did a few years ago, so I do know what you are going through. You can feel free to message me if you want to talk.

You can never discount a strong support base of friends and family- go to Livestrong.org join a support group ,get a yellow braclet, it has opened many talks for me. Start a carepages. Keep your head up and Livestrong or just ask people will talk believe me. I know what it's like to live with cancer,but cancer doesn't control my living. Best of luck my friend. Beck
