FAQs

Here are links to various topics I am often asked about:
Blog title: what does it mean?
Breaking news: what's the latest update?
Diagnosis: What's the story? What do you have?
Cause: How did you get it?
Prognosis: Is it terminal? How long do they expect you to live?
Symptoms: What effects does the cancer have? How does it feel?
This list is still under construction - I will be adding more content over the coming days and weeks. Please be patient, though you can let me know in comments if you have questions you'd like answered.

Sorry that I have still not got around to answering all these, even though many of them are not directly relevant any longer. I wish I'd done this a little more thoroughly, at least as a record for myself as much as for others.
