When I was first diagnosed with adenoid cystic carcinoma, in 1998, I felt alone and afraid. I was told that my cancer was very rare and that I would be lucky to find someone else with it. I gathered up my strength and started web-surfing to do just that. I found a story authored by a women with my disease. Her name was Nancy and she was my lifeline for over a year. She shared her own experiences and gave me the courage to go through those things that all cancer patients endure - surgeries, treatments, loneliness, fatigue, and that constant feeling that you have a lead ball in the pit of your stomach.
