As a child I received radical surgery and massive radiation treatment for cancer of the left parotid gland. I came on the job and I lived cancer free for 43 years.
Four years ago I had a sore throat isolated to my left side. From my initial doctor visit, biopsy, diagnoses, multiple consultations and the decision to have major re-constructive surgery and radiation again was less than 60 days. My unique surgery is a story in itself.
Which brings us to the Los Angeles Cancer Support Group (LAPCSG).
What can we offer diagnosed officers, employees, their family members or their your care givers?
There is someone in this group that has your particular cancer. Has been treated at your hospital. Received your treatments. Asked your questions. Have your concerns. It only takes a telephone call, an e-mail, a stop in the hallway or on the street to reach us.
