Survivor Hope

Hi, I am the wife of a Head and Neck survivor. Just wanted to give all of you a little hope. Nine years ago today my husband was diagnosed with with stage 4 pharyngeal cancer. All I could find about it was that he would only live maybe 12 months. Well here we are 9 years later and he is still here. Treatment was tough but he survived. Just wanted to offer a little hope because when he was diagnosed we didn't have much hope. So hope this helps some of you! Best of luck.
