More good news

I think it's important to share the 'good news' stories.  My Dad had his second endoscopy and CT scan last week and got the all clear today.  I realise he is not out of the woods yet, but our confidence is growing.  He has not had surgery due to his age, but a full-on combination of chemo and radiation which has done the job (at least for now).  The oncologist said the success is due to a combination of detecting the cancer early, hitting it hard with treatment and a bit of luck.  He also explained that a lot of the stats on the net are somewhat outdated and that there are more and more success stories (even without surgery).  Now to celebrate!

Hi Jen,

 

It's great to hear about your father doing well.  Hopefully, he keeps on beating this stuff.

 

Congrats & best wishes going forward,
