DFSP resource page

I have just created a website for the very rare cancer I have. Myself and my support group online want to get the word out about it. No one has heard of it. It is called DFSP: dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans. It makes up less than 1% of all sarcomas. It is so rare that not even the American Cancer Society has info on it. That is a scary thought from where I sit as a patient. There are approx. 1-4 cases diagnosed per million people worldwide each year. Early next year I will have Radiation treatments. I have also undergone 3 operations as well. Here is a link to the new site.  DFSP resource page
My next blog will be about Mohs surgery. It is needlessly cruel.                      


  1. Hi,

    I have DFSP and was treated using MOHS surgery in January 2010. Although the operation was hard for me it was better option for me. I don't think you can say it is cruel. The problem with MOHS is that it was originally designed to be used for small lesions in areas where minimum tissue could be removed. Often basal cell carcinoma etc. It is usually done on an out patient basis and the hospital is not set up to give an anesthetic. As you know DFSP tend to be quite large lesions. If I had not had MOHS I would have lost lost most of the tissue on my right shoulder and perhaps the movement of my right arm. So although it was not easy to go through I am now delighted.

    I was not told about MOHS by my surgeon and I had to find out it via the internet. I had to travel to the other side of France where I live to have the operation done. I hope that you manage to find what type of surgery is best for you and and most importantly that they manage to give you the all clear after the operation. I have had two scans and touch wood I am still clear and don't regret the MOHS at all!

  2. Hi, I respect you opinion very much. I know for me I was not able to handle it without sedation. I too have the all clear. I wish you the best.

Late 1970's so called "Babysitter Killer" murders solved?

The murders of 4 children in Oakland County,MI who were carefully cleaned and had their clothes washed dried and ironed got their killer dubbed "The Babysitter Killer". Now thanks to the father of one of the victims we now know who more than likely killed them and maybe more. The first victim was Mark Stebbins,12 from Ferndale,MI Feb. 13,1976.His body was found in a parking lot 6 days later. The next victim was Jill Robinson,12 taken from Royal Oak on Dec 12,1976. Her body was found in Troy. The 3rd victim was Kristine Mihelich,10 who was taken from Berkley on Jan. 2,1977. The last victim was Timothy King 11 taken March 11,1977 from Birmingham. His body was found in a ditch near Livonia. It was his father that learned the identity of the killer through a freedom of information lawsuit out of which he recived the case files. It is clear from those files that a local pedophile named Christopher Busch was the killer of these 4 children and maybe more. He also was convicted on 4…

White House Boys child abuse case

At the Florida Industrial School For Boys in Marinna,FL atrocities took place from at least the 1940's through the 1960's which until recently were kept hidden inside the victims.  One victim started a website and support system  for these boys now men who were beaten beyond my comprehension. Thanks to this brave man Roger Dean Kiser author of The White House Boys: An American Tragedy I am able to tell you their story. Thank you Mr.Kiser and all the brave White House Boys for allowing this blog to be written.
                Many of these boys were not sent to the reform school for any crime,they simply weren't wanted or were orphans. They were taken to a building at the school behind the mess hall called the White House  and were told to lay on a filthy mattress on a bed frame with springs. They then had to hold onto the metal bed frame and bite the nasty pillow while they were beat with a leather strap that had a metal strip inside for reinforcement. The wounds were horre…

Kreneice Jones, 3 yrs. old and LaMoine Allen, 2 yrs. old

This unrelated girl and boy were abducted from in front of the Jimmy Jackson grocery store on May 10,1992..An unidentified blue compact car with a false convertible top, chrome hubcaps and dark-tinted windows was seen in the area at the time the children vanished. The store they vanished from was 4 miles east of Woodville,MS on highway 24 where the kids were at a mothers day church dinner earlier.  LaMoine was from Edgard,LA as was Kreneice.  The children were African american.  They were ages 2 and 3.  There is a good chance that they are still alive and don't know they were abducted. If you have any information concerning this case, please contact: Federal Bureau Of Investigation Mississippi State Office 601-684-2500. /  /
