    Stage III rectal cancer, diagnosed Dec 02. I've had two recurrences and have officially only been cancer-free for a couple of months (since my last scan) - I finished my last round of chemo a week ago. BUT -- I have been a SURVIVOR since my diagnosis -- 4.5 years ago. I am grateful for every day of those years.

    Hi Everyone -
    I am thrilled to be posting here because my mom is officially cancer free since her original diagnosis in January 2003 as Stage 3 (4/20 positive lymph nodes). She unfortunatley had two local recurrences in 2003 which ended up resulting in a permanent colostomy, but since the cancer did not spread anywhere else, they still classify her as stage III.

    I still think about her diagnosis every day and wonder "how much time" I really have.. It has been bittersweet because since her diagnosis I got married and am now expecting her first grandchild - it is so precious to me that she is able to share these memories with me...

    Diagnosed stage IV in May of 2005, went into remission in October 2005, recurrence in July 2006, but NED since my liver resection last August (but I have this thing on my lung that might be new cancer ... probably not, though, will find out after a needle biopsy on Tuesday).
