Clear scan

My husband just had his 3 month PET scan following chemoradiation for tonsil cancer and I am thrilled to report that he is CANCER FREE!!! We are so very grateful and relieved!

I also wanted to say Thanks again to the folks here on this thread. When I was overwhelmed with caregiving and facing the most bleak moments of my life (and feeling very much alone) it was so nice to come here and read your encouraging words. Even though I wasn't active on the board at that time, it gave me such hope to see all the survivors who are managing quite well. I also appreciated being able to read about the REALITY of treatment, all the while knowing that everyone's experience is different. So THANK YOU for being here!!

I want to wish everyone a healthy and happy Christmas!! We will be staying at home this year - we're still feeling a little vulnerable and fresh from the battle. It will be nice to be able to finally relax and celebrate our victory together....just the two of us. 

Happy Holidays!

    wonderful news!

    So nice to hear NED reports. Remember many HNC survivors do really well and most graduate from here and go back to living well and don't hang around here so much. Keep steadfast during recoveryl, be patient, it does take time. Many discover the new normal is like the old normal, some find it is different. Enjoy! and Merry Christmas!
