for the first time......First was my surgeon and today my oncologist said " if you get cured "...For those who have Dr's that don't give hope....look for a 2nd opinion...I know there's no guarantees, but it helps to hear from your Dr. that there is a chance...years ago there was none...( or very little)...just the words, help you to stay positive...For the ones that don't remember me I am stage IV....dx 1/01/05...recurrance last year and NED again....they can keep on prolonging my life...the cure is close...
Believe and God bless

    Yes, we never give up hope. It certainly helps when our caregivers are positive about it as well. Keep up the good work.

    "Cure" is one of my ultimate FAVORITE 4-letter words!!!!!! (along with "SALE", "SAIL", "KIDS", "FREE", "LOVE", "SAFE", and "Kids go back to school in less than 2 weeks"~~oh, that's a few more than 4 letters, but I love them too! lol)

    I am so happy you are sharing this news with us. It really means so much when folks who reach a milestone share it on this board. Support is an awesome thing!!

    Hugs! (yet another terrific 4-letter word!)

    Cheers to your continued good health!
