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.

"Cropsey" Andre Rand

Only one of Rands multiple suspected victims has ever been found. She was Jennifer Schweiger a 12 year old with downs syndrome that he buried at his campsite in the woods near the mental hospital he was janitor at. He  got 25 years to life for her kidnapping and murder.  Here is a list of other possible victims who's bodies have yet to be found:  Alice Pereia, Holly Ann Hughes, Tiahease Tiawanna Jackson & Henry Gafforio. Audrey Lyn Nergenberg, an eighteen-year-old who disappeared in 1977 is also believed to be linked to Rand. Let's help Staten Island police solve these cases and brings these kids home for their families to bury. He spree of terror lasted from at least 1977 to 1987 when he killed Jennifer. At right is a picture of Jennifer, an innocent young life needlessly lost.

New Facebook group to help a mom

I have started a new Facebook group Healing through justice for the victims of Felix Vail . Vail was serial killer who’s 1st known victim was his 1st wife whom he is incarcerated for drowning in 1962. It took over 50 years to convict him. I am now working with the mother of his 17 year old 2nd wife Annette Craver who vanished in 1984. He also had a girlfriend in the 1970’s who vanished named Sharon Hensley. I will also have Annette’s mom on KIDMISSING RADIO on April 6,2019. I would like to thank Rusty Arnold for directing Mary Rose’s friend Binney to me and Binney for for connecting me with Mary.

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…
