treatable and cureable

Options
One year ago the doctors told my wife and I that my cancer was not cureable but treatable.
Theysaid my cancer was too far advanced and had spread to other parts of my body--Lungs to neck and tounge.It was stage 4 and crossed center line to both nodes.
Treament was 8 chemo and 36 rads on lungs and 36 rads to neck. I was 76 years old when treament started and there was not much hope that I would be able to stand up to the treament.
2012 just passed the 2nd P.E.P scan and scope and no cancer!!Only God knows when its time

    Proof
    Proof that God alone is the healer. Doc's are just instruments in the scheme. Keep the faith and good luck in the rest of your life.

    You are
    correct in the big scheme of things, when God says its time its time. We all appreciate the doctors and medical world that treats us, but thats as far as they can go after that its up to God. Thanks for the uplifting message.

    Fantastic
    This is a fantastic post for anyone who is in a position when Doctors tell
    them that there in nothing we can do for you any more.......Doctors are
    not God.....only he will tell you when your time is up. Congratulations on
    your survival and may God keep you on this road to a cancer free life.

    God bless
    Tonsil dad,

    Dan.
