My name is Terry Ouellette and I live in Atlantic Canada. I was diagnosed with metastatic liver cancer in April 2016. I am 68 years old and have been receiving chemo treatments every two weeks since my diagnosis. I am completely functional and take care of my house and my handicapped husband without any help. If you are interested in knowing how I cope with all of this, I have created a website Attitude Positive Cancer which details my daily life, my philosophies, etc. My website is in both English and French – your choice.
Hoping I can bring a bit of joy and inspiration into someone’s life!

Thank you for welcoming me to your site and for giving me a place to share my blog address. I will certainly explore your site and see how other people like me are coping with this illness. It is so important to have a social network when living with cancer. xo

Welcome Terry! I wholeheartedly agree with you. My attitude was, I have cancer, it doesn’t have me. I also feel if I have a recurrence even now that it is what it is and we’ll deal with it if it happens. I don’t spend time worrying about it.
I also wanted to say that your name is one that we’re doing a family tree history of with many having come from Canada. In the states, it was changed to Willette. I know there is a large Ouellette family reunion in Canada and it’s quite the event. I don’t have all the info on it and just wondered if you’re part of it?
Wishing you all the best on your journey. Take care, Judy

Stage IIIA adeno, dx 7/2010. SRS then chemo carbo/alimta 4x. NED as of 10/2011.
Local recurrence, surgery to remove LRL 8/29/13. 5.2cm involved pleura. Chemo carbo/alimta x3. NED

Thank you for your positive message and your good wishes, Judy, it’s good to hear from people who have the exact same attitude towards cancer as I do.
About the Ouellette family reunion in Canada, Sorry I haven’t heard anything about it yet. Ouellette is my husband’s family name – first time I see the ‘Willette’ version of it!

Take care, Terry
