The American Bladder Cancer Society was born from the hope of survivors of this often overlooked and underserved disease that the future could be made easier for those that came after them.

When faced with a diagnosis of bladder cancer, you and those that care about you are thrown into a freighting place where knowledge is potentially lifesaving. How do you even know what applies to you when you do not even know the questions to ask, what is the difference between stage 1 and 2, what is a cystoscopy? Here you will find many bladder cancer related links, definitions, and overviews on different subjects. Read more...

How do you deal with it? Seadoo, One day at a time! I still remember the words "you have high grade bladder cancer". I concluded pretty quickly that it happened and all I could do was go forward as much as I could. Everyone deals with it differently so there is no right or wrong....

10 years ago-having a Radical Cystectomy Bella, I moved your post as it deserved its own thread. As I do not know what type of diversion you are going to have I can not address that side of things.

Biospy Results - 6 week BCG That's terrific that you eat healthy. My husband does not and I cannot get him to change his ways. Too much meat, not enough fruits and veggies. It is a miracle he has agreed to take the curcumin. Thanks for the inspiration, I'll try harder to convince him...
