THUY Hoang (featured on page 50)
"I am 42 years old. I am Vietnamese, but I live in the USA. I am married with three sons. I went to the doctor because i was having painful periods. By the time I went to the doctor I looked six months pregnant....The doctor came into the room and he shut the door. He told me that I had cancer. I was shocked. I was stunned. Then I had no reaction at all. I was frozen.

I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer stage 111, I had a total hysterectomy done right away.

A few months later, I found a lump in my right breast. I had a lumpectomy. My lymph nodes were positive for cancer. Then, I had a right radical mastectomy with radiation. I have had 16 surgeries. My body has been through a lot

I have the family stresses of the Eastern Medical Philosophy, but I am in the USA and I am completely absorbed in Western medicine. My mom wants me to take Chinese Herbs, but I stopped

I love to eat. I am a fighter. I know my mission in my life is to raise my sons. They need their mom. I need them. I am not done living"

This is what Thuy's brother-in-law, Mark Dello Russo, says about her
"Thuy has been the strongest, toughest, and most positive thinking person I have ever met in my life. What she has gone through for the past 6 years and how she handled it is a tribute to the strength of character of cancer survivors and patients everywhere. Thuy is a fighter and a survivor of the magnitude that very few people get to see in life. She is truly, an amazing person and an amazing survivor."
