Looking for any Clear Cell Carcinoma Sisters! (Ontario)

I'm 48 and was just diagnosed with Stage 2 OCCC a few days ago. Feeling VERY angry and incredibly overwhelmed. I'm having a hard time accepting that I am now part of the Cancer Industry. Apparently the stats aren't that great for this cancer type.
Just wondering if anyone has any tips on how to cope, emotionally. Thanks.


  • Hello @SpectacularKaos... welcome to the chat site and sorry to hear about your recent diagnosis.
    How are you doing today? There is a lot of support here on the site as well as many topics and coping strategies we hope will assist you. I'll also private message you.
  • I have OCCC - Stage 3 and know exactly how you feel.  I was diagnosed in early February. It is overwhelming at times but I just focus on the good days when I can get out and do normal activities like shopping, visiting with friends, and walking as well as doing hobbies.  I try to live in the moment and take it day by day.  This is easier to do in weeks two and three once the chemo side effects wear off.
