Your bladder is the hollow, muscular organ in your lower belly where urine is stored. When you urinate, the muscles of your bladder contract and push urine out through a tube called the urethra. Bladder cancer starts when cells in the bladder start to grow out of control. These cells can form into a bladder tumor. They can also spread outside your bladder to lymph nodes and to structures far from the bladder, like your bones, lungs or liver. This is known as metastasis.

I first saw Dr. Bellemare after acquiring the worst kind of acute pancreatitis from an ERCP possible. After getting blood clots throughout my left leg and all the way to my groin and having a pulmonary embolism, she continued to see me in the hospital and I was there for a month and a half. When she couldn't see me, she made sure someone did. She is an angel and I will never forget her.
