Hi Everyone,

Wanted to let you know, that I got the results of my PET/CT today, I have one every year. And its clean no cancer at all.. thank God. I was a StageIV 6 years ago, this July. So there is hope for anyone with a StageIV dx. My onc said technically after 5 years I shouldn't have to have a scan anymore, but I told her I feel better keeping a check on it every year, with my colonoscopy and Pet scan. Never ever give up, keep fighting this beast, your all in my thoughts and prayers.

Love,
Gail
