Just returned from Mayo Clinic with a clean scan. NED. Yea! I am so grateful. Today is my 2 year anniversary of my diagnosis. We all remember that shocking and somber day. I continue to pray for all of you here and especially the newly diagnosed. It is a tough battle but can be won. God Bless.....

Congratulations Gerry!!! Awesome news. You're right, it is a tough battle but it can be won! I tell everyone that cancer is almost more of a mental battle than a physical and I really believe that. Congratulations again you deserve it!
