Hi Everyone,
I haven't been here for awhile, but stopped by tonight see how things were going. I see some names I don't recognize, which means more have joined this group. It's such a great source of friendship and information. I also saw names I did recognize, and that's great! I passed my one year cancer free mark in July. Now to work on year two! Take care everyone. (((hugs)))

If you don't mind me asking, what stage were you? I am just curious :)

This board has made me feel that I am not alone while helping my mom with this battle.

Nice to see you back :)

Hi Brittany,
I don't mind your asking! I'm happy to answer anything on this I can. I was stage Ic. I hope your mom is doing OK. It's a tough fight, but the friends I've made here are fantastic. They've made the journey a lot easier. Take care.

Hi Lisa,
I had the standard taxol and carboplatinum combo. Six treatments, 3 weeks apart. It took care of my hair along with any remaining nasty cells. No radiation though. The hair came back curly and a lot lighter, but I'll take it! I actually need to go in for a trim soon. Where are you at with this? Take care.

Congratulations on your survivorship anniversary!!

I actually started my cancer journey of biopsies and sonograms in July 2008, but it wasn't until September 2008 that I was referred to a gyn-onc who confirmed my cancer, with surgery and the start of actual treatment in October 2008. So at what date do I consider myself a One Year Survivor? I want to at least treat myself to a special gift that day! Or have I already missed my anniversary??! (Not that I'll let that stop me from celebrating; you can NEVER be too good to yourself! HA!)

I think you should use the cancer journey date of July. Extra treat for being late in the celebration. LOL
