Today I am celebrating 7 years cancer free. When I was diagnosed with stage IIb cancer my mom was also being treated for a recurrence of stage 1 ovarian cancer. My mom lost her battle after 11 years and 4 recurences. I have stayed in remission since my 1st. This cancer doesn't make sense as to who will survive long term and who won't but I am proof that we do survive! Those of you who are still battling ... there is HOPE! I pray everyday that more of us will be able to say that we are long term survivors. My prayers and hugs are with all of you brave and wonderful women on this board!

Jami, YIPPEE!!!!!!!! And, CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Wow, what a marvelous milestone! You certainly do show the rest of us HOPE! To me, that is about the biggest thing we are offered in this battle against this horrific disease! I hope you and your family are going to have a party! Please keep 'being' there for the rest of us. With love and gratitude, MichaelaMarie

Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy!!! I'm so happy for you! And what timing to give so many here inspiration and hope. You're right, one never knows who will have years and years to celebrate. That's why we must savor the moment and do the best we can with what we're given.

Thank you for sharing your celebration with us. It does my heart good.

That is truly good news! I needed to hear that since I'm now waiting on the results of my petscan to see where life takes me next. I thank God for you and it is so good to hear good news on here to give us all a boost. I hope you have continued good health.

That is great, I envy you so much.. my Mom is suffering recurrence of stage IIIB and I'm devastated. Just today I was chating with a Stage IIIc lady who hasn't had a recurrence since 2001. Incredible. It's amazing that your Mom did have a recurrence I you haven't. What treatment did she recieve?
Congrads to you, may you enjoy many more.

Jami, You KNOW I'm very happy for you, too! This is so good to hear, and I know you'll continue to take care of yourself and will enjoy good health for a long time.

I hope you have a wonderful Easter with your family, as I plan to have with mine.
