I've been following this board daily for a couple months now, and feel it's time I introduce myself. Actually, I tried to last week, and after writing a rather lengthy review of my health history, my message just seemed to disappear. I'm determined to try again, as I'm really impressed with the members on this board, and the way they share their experiences in effort to help someone else. I hope I can do the same.
Here I am in a "nutshell". 61 year young female, married to her best friend, for almost 40 years. Two years ago this month I began treatment for Stage 4, Squamous Cell, Base of tongue, more that one lymph node involved. Like most of you, it really rocked my world. I've never smoked (anything...what kind of 60's child was I, anyway?);) I drank very little, expecially by Wisconsin standards!
I'm really jittery about losing this post...so I'll close for now, but look forward to sharing more of my story with you soon.
Life is soooo good!!
