Hi my son is now a 4 year survivor of this cancer. He is 6 years old. In another year he will be DONE with CT scans and blood work etc., he will be considered CURED!!! Although this makes me happy beyond words, it is scary not to have that Ct. to be a watch dog. Anyone else out there feel the same? Lisa

hello ! my son is now 11 and on his sixth year of remission of rhabdomyosarcoma. he only has 9 more to go before he is considered cured. congratulations by the way the four year mark is a huge accomplishment that many do not see.
i have to admitt I am very nervous. my son is only seen now on a need to be seen basis, and that is scary. I keep asking my self what if ? that is my newest project. learning how to let my guard down just a little and litten up. his status just changed in april and I am still having are hard time wether he gets a nose bleed, a pain,cramp, or if he just acts to tired.but I guess that go with being a parent/caregiver. if you want to talk my e mail is verlo202@mwt.net
