    Congrats!

    What a great way to celebrate Spring which is very symbolic of rebirth.
    May you have another 11 years cancer free, then 11 more, then 11 more...

    Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful!

    What a joy to read you post. 

    Joy for you, knowing that you are living the life of a survivor.

    Joy for us, especially for those of us at the beginning of our journey, when things are still so new and scary.

    Another NED

    More encouraging words "I've been NED 6 yrs this month".  I remember how important encouraging words were to me when starting my journey :)  I was 3A with one node.

    My best to all of you and wishes for a long life ahead.

    Thanks for Sharing!

    I can't tell you what it means to me to hear that your are cancer free for so long. 

    I get very anxious and frightened when I read how many people here have had recurrences and new cancers.  I was beginning to think that it is just inevidable and that has preyed on my mind since I finished my treatment in September.  I lay awake at night worrying about when the other shoe would drop.  Every CT scan and blood scares the heck out of me.  It is still so new for me and it is so reassuring to hear some people DO make it without getting a recurrence or get another type of cancer.

    I feel so sad for the people who find out they have to start another battle with cancer.  It literally brings me to tears.

    Thanks so much for sharing!
