Three and a half years ago I was diagnosed with Stage 3 rectal cancer and my world as I knew it changed forever.
Recently I had my routine labs and CT scan and received the "all clear" from the oncologist. Of course I was elated (mild understatement but no one word describes the sense of relief and joy).
I wanted to share this news with you, esp. with the new people on this board, to offer you hope.
I know I'm fortunate to be NED, and I also know the cancer could come back. But for now---today--I am healthy, happy and strong.
This board can at times be very sad and the news can make you feel rather low. I wanted to share my good news to let you know that there can be a brighter future in store for you too.
Always with you all in spirit,
