We are all survivors but maybe she is referring to the DATE, you know the DATE...five years! :-) That would be great encouragement and I am working on it@

Hope your Mom is doing well!! Hugs!

I will be a five year survivor of stage III colon cancer as of Aug. 12 this year.
I have been cancer free since surgery.

Although I am not 70 yet but at age 56 I DO get senior discounts and I love it ;) But I know what you are asking.

My Mother-in-law was diagnosed stage IIIb 2 years ago at age 72. She had surgery and chemo and has had 3 or 4 scans and is doing well, and at this time no evidence of disease.She has some lingering effects from the chemo such as neuropathy and fatigue.

I hope your Mother does well with her treatments.

Best wishes,

I turn 60 in December and am living life to the fullest! Chemo was completed a year ago.
