I am celebrating 50 years of fantastic years since my battle with cancer of the larynx in 1959 at age six. I have lived a wonderful and blessed life. I met a beautiful lady in 2006 from Bohol, Philippines and I depart Oct. 28 to bring Gemma and her five year old daughter back with me and to plan our wedding, Feb. 21, 2009. I recently wrote a book, 'Hello Cancer...Remember Me?' about my memories in my battle with cancer, 1959. It can be found on the PublishAmerica web sight. Thanks, Paul Streble

    Me too--Cancer (neuroblastoma)removed in '58. It feels a bit odd, doesn't it? God is amazing. And life is such a precious gift--we have been so blessed! --Maryruth

    God is so awesome..this post has certainly given me joy.. and it shows how God really will come through for any of us,, but we must have faith..for the bible says without faith it is impossible to please Him..Hebrews 11:6. Faith brings God's promises to come into your life.. but fear brings the enemy's curses into your life..I was diagnosed with breast cancer.. my Father in heaven has healed me , and your post has inpired me, and proved God's word to be true.

    Bless the Lord God,the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things

    I came here looking to see if anyone had me beat in 42 years of being cancer free. Glad to know there are people that have gone through this longer than me. It's a great sign!

    I had Hodgkins at the age of 5. The doctors told me I was the youngest to survive it in SF history. Not sure if that is true, just what they told me.

    Where are you from?
    Just curious where you live and where you had your treatment? I am from Northern California and I had my Hodgkins treated in SF in 1968.
