Journey's of Carcinoid Cancer Survivors
Cy Ball Carcinoid Journey

I find that talking about my cancer is therapeutic. Also, carcinoid is unusual enough that I hope somebody reading this may decide to go to their doctor and get tested because their symptoms are similar. Many doctors are not familiar with this and some doctors are familiar but don’t understand. My story is not very unusual. Many carcinoid have symptoms that go unexplained for years or they don’t have symptoms but the tumors are discovered by accident during unrelated procedures.

On Sept 11, 2001, I went to see my doctor for the results of a routine physical exam.  She said the chest x-ray shows a small spot on my left lung that was probalby nothing "but we would need to keep an eye on it.

Well an hour later the whole world changed when the Twin Towers went down and not long after that my personal world changed too.  I put the "spot" far in the back of my mind.

My name is Dick Hartman.  My wonderful wife Leann and I live in Cheyenne, WY.  I have three very special step daughters and five precious grandchildren.  (Four granddaughters and one grandson).

In July of 2011, after a bout with pneumonia, a follow-up cat scan showed hot spots in my liver.  After a biopsy, the hot spots were diagnosed as carcinoid tumors.  Leann and I were shocked and totally unprepared for the roller coaster of events that soon followed

Nan, how does it feel to have cancer? Are you going to die, Nana?  Questions from my 6 & 4 year old grandsons 10 days after diagnosis of this uninvited guest in my body, “Carcinoid”.  Those questions were not far from my own thoughts upon awakening from a bowel resection May 18th, 2004.   I remember hearing the words “You have Carcinoid cancer that has spread to your liver

After over a decade of suffering from Carcinoid Cancer, Sunny Jennings Carney has decided to fight back. She has currently undergone two proven treatments in Basel, Switzerland and is planning to return for two more. She is also planning on going to Houston, Texas for a six month period to undergo experimental treatments that look promising but are not FDA approved. She has exhausted all the FDA approved treatments here in the United States and will not accept that this is all there is for her. She has dedicated her fight to help others understand this rare cancer and to find successful treatments in the United States. Her strong faith in God and will to never quit has turned a 6 month life expectancy to over two years presently.
