"What Cancer Cannot Do"
Cancer is so limited... It cannot cripple love It cannot shatter hope It cannot corrode faith It cannot destroy peace It cannot kill friendship It cannot suppress memories It cannot silence courage It cannot invade the soul It cannot steal eternal life It cannot conquer the spirit"
The type of cancer is Desmoplastic small-round-cell tumor, a very very rare Sarcoma. Here's a link explaining more in depth...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desmoplastic_small-round-cell_tumor
What I have is stage 4 cancer. As long as Sarcoma pops up anywhere in my body, it will be stage 4. It was in 3 locations initially: My abdomen, bottom of my right lung, and my right ureter. For the second round the same type of cancer appeared in my rectum. The third round is looking like my neck, top of my left kidney, and unfortunately the rectum again.
For those who were already aware of my condition, I appreciate all the love and support i've received so far. You have no idea how much it means to me. And those who did not...I apologize that this is the way your finding out but it's been a rough road thus far and it's not gonna get any easier from here. If you are aware of a mutual friend that has not informed of my situation, please do so for me and my family. I am strong because those around me have lifted me up when i could not stand, for that i'll never for get you. This disease has taken a lot from me and i am sorry if I come across short or brief during conversations.
Any support: Monetary, text message, phone call, email, or face to face contact will assist me in getting through this difficult time and i thank you in advance. Check us out @TeamDarrell via Facebook also.
For those who prefer not to send the assistance via go fund me make checks payable to Darrell Smith II. 635 Spearman Ave. Farrell, PA 16121.
