I got a great signal boost from The Carcinoid Cancer Foundation yesterday! The COO @CarcinoidNETs on Twitter tweeted about my new YouTube videos and she posted on the Carcinoid Cancer Foundation (CCF) Facebook page about my music and blog as well!
This is tremendous exposure for me and I am now trying to return the favor by posting a music video of my piece “Carcinoid”. This music was composed in 2011 about 3 months after I was diagnosed with carcinoid cancer, during the time that I was quite ill from a treatment called chemoembolization or TACE (transarterial chemoembolization). That treatment was supposed to be outpatient but I went into Carcinoid Crisis and spent the night in the Intensive Care Unit! I was told that there would be “flu-like” symptoms for 3 weeks but mine lasted 4 weeks and for a week there was a fair amount of pain in my liver. After the illness my symptoms from the cancer disappeared and my liver tumor shrank. Unfortunately, after six months, the tumors grew back and the symptoms came back actually worse than ever.
The music is an echo of my emotional and physical illness from the cancer diagnosis and the treatment.
This music is a free download at my store.
May we all have the best possible outcomes,
