Hi Everyone,

Well this special day is here again ! ! !

Brief History: March 20, 2002 I was in the hospital now havivg surgery to remove my stage 3 rectal cancer, 10 positive lymph nodes.

I never thought when I reached the lowest point in my life that I would ever laugh, smile or find the way to learn to live again. I Did.
Now on my 3rd birthday this first day of spring, life is truly wonderful again. Most of all I say this to let others know who are just starting there journey it truly does get better, Have Faith...
To all my friends here at the CSN " Thank You " for all your love & support... A special thank you to Stacy Gleason, you were the first person I met at this board and now 3 years later I have a wonderful friend. I can't wait to meet you in person at Palooza 2 in Las Vegas.

Semi- Colons Rock ! ! !

Have A Wonderful Day Everyone.

With Love,

HURRAY!!!!!!!!! I agree. I was just talking to my husband about how to pick a celebration day. I decided to celebrate many days!!

So happy for you. My first surgery was in Feb 2003. I am soooo grateful I found this board so quickly.

May you have a million more anniversaries, and opportunities to help more semi-colons.

Have a wonderful year! jana

Hello Everyone,

Just wanted to say Thank You for all the Kind Wishes on my 3rd anniversary... I had a wonderful day with my son, Andrew was in a curling tournament where he won his division. I don't know who was more proud him or me.

Then this morning( March 21 ) I got the results back from my scan & chest x-ray that was done on March 3rd. Negative for any cancer NED,NED,NED.

Oh Happy Day ! ! !

You have proven to be one of my closest friends who has SO much in common with me it's scary! You deserve to have MANY MANY happy years ahead! Perhaps you can teach us the art of curling in Vegas! This trip promises to be the highlight of my year, and I am honored to be able to share it with you and your happy news!

All my best,

Hi Lisa,
This board is so busy I have a hard time keeping up. Just had to send my congratulations to you...stories like yours are just the boost we all need. My onc also said that the recurrance curve drops off dramatically after year 3...time for a celebration!
Happy Spring! Judy
