may 2024 be a better year for you all. It’s been a long time since I last checked out this site. I wanted to offer hope to any and all that visit. I am an unusual 17 year survivor and you might be too! Please feel free to reach out

    Hi your post is great to read. My husband just finished 2nd round of chemo so now effectively done. He’s been amazing and so positive as we both have. It’s now reality of the future is kicking in and so reading your post has helped my anxious thoughts for our years ahead. Thank you
