Cancer relief

I have HPV-16 positive cancer located in right tonsil and back of tongue area. I was diagnosed first part of June . I started in January with a pain in right tonsil area which spread pain to right ear. After diagnosis the treatment plan was 7 weeks of radiation along with 1 treatment weekly of chemotherapy. For the past three years I have been working at home daycare as a teacher.  I live in northern Illinois with my husband  Gary and my dog Rosco.
