Awesome Update


I went to my Oncology appointment yesterday and received wonderful news. My CT Scan came back "great" It was NED!!! Also my CEA went from a 35 at the start of chemo in June to 3.8 as of yesterday!!!!! They said I am NOT cured, but I am in remission!!!

I don't want to celebrate too much because it could come back, but I have never been through this and have been scared since diagnosed in April of this year.

    So excited to hear your wonderful news. 

    I still think you should celebrate in some way. We all know that stats, but until it happens, which it may not, celebrate the NED. I bought myself a bracelet which I replaced my silicone Kickin' Cancer bracelet with. Just my way of celebrating. You'll know how to celebrate you. 

    May you see many years of NED.

    NED is always worth celebrating!

    You never know how long he'll stick around (might as well assume forever, until proven otherwise), and he's a fun guy to pal around with for as long as it lasts (kind of like some guys I dated).

    No one is truly ever cured

    I am in my 4th year of remission, and I always consider myself ned. So glad you are in the ned club for however long it might be :-))))))
