I was first diagnosed in 2009 with vulvar cancer and had a partial vulvectomy. I had six weeks of radiation and seemed to be on the road to recovery.
After a year my tissue started falling apart from radiation damage and I went through a couple years of treatment with really no success, just so much pain. The cancer came back in November of 2013 and I had a radical vulvectomy and spent a week at Moffitt Cancer Center.
I truly felt like this horrible ordeal was over with until I was re-diagnosed this month with the same cancer. I will win this battle no matter what! I will Fight Like A Girl and win! I have excellent doctors and I am very confident. Keep some humor during this and just remain focused on beating this terrible disease
