I was diagnoised with the same thing in 1967 many years ago and I'm now 64 and still around. I had to have a hysterectomy and haven't had any problems since. My children were very young at the time and I thought the same thing. They need me. God was very good to me. I now have 8 grandchildren and on great grandchild. I was scared like you and thought I was going to die and leave 3 young ones. Just keep a positive attitude!
