Hi, Everyone

Hi, All.  Haven't been on in a while.  So far I am 4 and 1/2 years n.e.d.; however, the side effects from the chemo and radiation have left me permanently disabled.  I was hospitalized twice for pneumonia due to scarred lung tissue from one of the chemo drugs I was given.  My husband lost his battle with his second cancer last January 2013.  It has been a long road; a sad road.  I miss him very much... we were the best of friends. 

I am however doing my first relay for life this June... in memory of my husband and as a survivor myself.  My children will be there to cheer me on and to remember their step-dad.

I hope all of you are doing well.  God bless.

    Thanks for stopping in to update us, but I'm sorry to hear that you have long-term and permanent side effects that you are dealing with.  I'm happy to know that you are 4 1/2 years NED though! 

    I send you my condolences on the loss of your husband.  I'm sure he would be proud of you knowing that you will participate in the relay this year.  It's a great way to memoralize those we've lost to this disease, raise awareness and help with funding for research, etc. 

    Take care and come back any time!
