    Has anyone else, past or present, been diagnosed with kidney cancer? Also- I have never typed in a forum. I apologize if I’m doing it wrong. lol

      Hi, there- I have to admit, I felt kind of silly joining a website- I am the worst, when it comes to technology. lol- After reading a couple of articles, in random searches for information, I thought- these might be my People! 🙂 So, like I said- I am new to this site, new to social media. I am 30 years old, I have MS (w/ Tysabri infusions every 28 days) and was recently diagnosed with kidney cancer. My immune system is extremely weak, and I have been ill quite a bit. I am married, with two young kiddos. I know no one who is dealing with MS, much less MS and kidney cancer- especially at my age… and I am finding it to be very isolating, at times. I will be having kidney surgery and know there is going to be a very long road ahead for me (both physically and mentally)- so I am more or less trying to build my support system as best I can. I would greatly appreciate any guidance, friendship or support from anywhere! lol– Thank you so much.
