December 5, the day I had the cancer cut from my body.  Dx stage 3 B, just a little over 2 weeks after turning 40.  I did not join here until after my last chemo, when I really started to really freak out, wondering if I was not actively fighting it, how could it be stopped.  I thought the chemo was the only thing that could keep it at bay.  I had seen my mom die from colon cancer less than 3 yrs before me and her mom when I was 19.  I simpley thougt it could never be beat.  I am happy to be wrong.  Yes, I have lost many friends from here since I joined, but I have also gained so many more friends that have not.  Do not be afraid if you are just starting out, we are here for you.

     G'day mate , good to see you again. Have a great christmas and an even better new year. Thanks for continuing to show up and give hope to those who feel that they may have no hope. That includes me as I sometimes feel a little lonely as a long termer . The more that join the club the better. Ron.

thank you for the hope, encouragement and inspiration. I'm stage 4 for less than 4 months and I'm not afraid but definitely apprehensive about my future. I just need a few clear scans under my belt and I'll feel more settled. You look like you're doing great, best wishes and good luck to you as you move forward : )

Wishing you many more years of happy thoughts and dreams! Keep uup the great attitude.  We have cancer in our lives, but cancer does not have to define us.

Congratulations and glad that you checked in.  You are always thought of as your date was right around when mine was discovered so think of you about this time of year.  Hope everything else is going well.
