I am 45 and have had thyroid cancer and renal cancer plus I still have a bone marrow disorder called meylofibrosis which is affecting my kidneys, liver and spleen.I have two kids, two grandchildren, and I had just started dating a wonderful man named Robert.After having known him for 10 years, we had finally gotten together.
