Hi all, don't post much but read frequently. Brief hx- dx Nov. '03 at 32 yrs old with St 4 colon ca & liver mets. Had colon resect, liver resect followed by 14 rnds FOLFOX and rads. Remission for 13 mos then recurr. in liver in Jan '06. Had 50% of liver resect for a 2nd time then more chemo. I have been NED since that surgery and as of July '08 I am now 2.5 yrs clean. I con't to get Avastin every two wks. I also have celebrated a few milestones this yr....my two boys have graduated and will be starting college soon, my daughter turned 13, and I have gone back to full time at work. And by the grace of God, I too, have many, many, many more miles to go before I sleep. Thank You God for your grace...amen. For those still fighting, as you live and breathe everyday, your winning!!!! Take care all.

Sincerely,
Averi

WOOHOO! What an uplifting post!! I have been dealing with my 3rd recurrence this year BUT -- I also had the indescribable joy of being present for my eldest's high school graduation -- I felt sorry for every other parent in the room! Thank you for drawing attention to the countless joys we all get to experience....Tara
