Hi All:

Well, all of my prayers have been answered. Went to my Oncologist yesterday for ct scan results. The cancer that I had is DEAD. Very small spots left that could barely be seen on the ct scan. I was told that it was probably scar tissue. I can't believe I made it through this.

I was diagnosed on August 16, 2006 with Stage IV Colon Cancer. Surgery and six months of chemo and now DEAD CANCER. I cannot even describe how I feel.

There is HOPE and NEVER give up as I wanted to. I am in the clear and have no more treatments. Of course, I will have pet scans and ct scans every two months but I WILL NOT let this cancer back in.

I pray for each and everyone who is going through this or has a family member going through this.

Annie

ANNIE!!!!!!!!!!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

Wonderful news, thank you so much for sharing it with us. Have you considered joining us in Nashville, TN this September for the reunion party? You should, you'll have a great time. We'll be celebrating those who are "newly NED," "NED for a while now," "actively getting treatment towards NED," and those supporting everyone along the way.

It's a great inspiring way to celebrate your NEW HEALTH!!!

Best wishes for many many more to come!

Stacy

This subject line is an adrenaline rush! WOW!

I have a funny story for you. When my granddaughter was about 2 and a half, after numerous Christmas celebrations with presents for her, of course, she was told there were no more presents, when she wanted another one,
(Those of you who have experience with 2 year olds can relate.) She put her hand to her forehead and yelled, "NO MORE PRESENTS!!" and promptly threw herself to the floor in full tantrum. The entire family was there and witnessed this, and we laughed so hard. My mother took Maggie aside and explained about there being "no more". Before they finished their talk, they were saying "No more turkey! BooHoo No more decorations! BoooHooo No more etc., putting their hand on their foreheads and laughing.
We still carry on the tradition of No more Christmas presents! at the end of our unwrapping.
So NO MORE TREATMENT!!! sounds like a like a wonderful new slogan.

Well done Annie. Too often we unfortunately meet others here who have been afflicted and have only the knowledge that cancer might kill them. Stories like yours are here for those that have been plagued by thoughts of the worst outcomes. You and others give those still in fear the inspiration to fight on.
Now go out and treat yourself to something special....you deserve to be rewarded!
Good on yah gal....huggs, Ross n Jen

Excellent, Annie!!! I'm so happy for you!! And yes, it is stories like yours that those of us just starting on the 6 month treatment plan, get the inspiration we need. I am on Chemo (Oxaliplatin/5FU/Leucovorin) Session #2 this week and must say, today is a "yucky day" :/ I woke up and had literally no energy... this must be the chemo fatigue (?) people talk about, but is the first bout I experienced. So it looks like each session is going to throw something new at me ;)

Weeeeeeee!!! So that is why it is so good to hear from you that you made it through and with excellent results!!

PLEASE don't anyone give up. I was told 8 months ago that I might have 6 months to live. Well I fought it and I WON. 6 months of chemo, but it was well worth it. I cannot even express how I feel. I actually went out to dinner with my husband to celebrate and had TWO cocktails!!! It can be done. If I did it, anyone can.

GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!

Annie
