Greetngs everyone.

I saw my ENT today for the periodic exam. She did the usual poke, prod and scoping procedures. When she was done she told me everything looked great and handed me a collar pin. The pin marks the five year point from the end of treatment.

Then she told me that we could now view the cancer as cured.

Now I have another dance partner added to my dance card. In addition to my old partner NED, I've added the partner CURED.

It's been a long road to get to this day, but it was all worth it. A special thanks to all my old friends here who helped me through the fog of treatment and the slow pace of recovery, and a prayer for those old friends who couldn't be here to share this day.

Happy Dance!

Rush

    Happy Dance you bet.....

    CURED trumps NED and everything else. What a nice reward for going down that road and fighting the beast, CURED! It is so good to hear when some gets to that stage. Please celebrate for all of us.

    5 years is a long time but you've crossed the big one - officially cured. Congrats!

    CURED, has a nice ring to it

    Rush,

    Congratulations on reaching the PINnacle of year five of post treatment. Hearing cured is a big mouthful or in our case a big H&N full.
