I am just celebrating one year since my last treatment for stage 4 tonsil cancer. I am at a loss for words to say how much better I feel today. Even better today than a few weeks ago. I wanted to post this to give those out there some words of encouragement. A year ago I put on a good face for everyone but I really thought I was not going to make it. Thanks to my wife, friends, family and of course God above I made it this far. Everyone hang in there and keep your spirits up.

This is really great news Tim!!! This week makes exactly one year ago that I had my first chemo and rad treatment for lung and laryngeal cancers. I am now in remission and doing great and waiting for my first anniversary of completing treatment. This won't be until September 28th so I am not going to wish time away - I want to enjoy every day that God and the doctors have given me ;-)

Congratulations and keep up the good work.

Tim,
That is fantastic to hear for you and for those of us still in treatment (My partner, stage IV tonsil). His surgeon told him at 1 year he would be back to baseline. It is so great to hear this is your experienence. Congratulations!!!!

Dennis, it is great to hear you feel you are turning the corner. Is it the hyperbaric???

Great News Tim, I also just past the one year post treatment mark (June 19th)....

My ENT feels that this is a very important milestone.

Charles, like the new photo, shows you are progressing and have your mind in the right direction....stay positive and keep on pressing bro.

Best,
John
