After my stage III rectal cancer diagnosis in December of 2004, and the chemo, rads, and surgery (times 2) for that, and my stage II breast cancer diagnosis in July of 2005 with the surgery (lumpectomy), chemo, and rads...my LAST rad treatment was July 3, 2006!!!!

The only remnant is the Tamoxifen, and my lactose intollerance....WHEW! I remember during my treatment hell thinking about this day coming...and hoping for the best (the rectal cancer had me dying June, 2005...)

So it is 3 years post-cancer treatment, 4 years post-cancer diagnosis on the breast, and going on 5 years post-diagnosis on the rectal...it truly IS a great independence day tomorrow!!!!

Hugs, Kathi
