In August I will celebrate three years since I was diagnosed with stage 3C UPSC. I believe I'm alive because I had excellent doctors who performed surgery, chemo and radiation, I had loving prayers, ginger and green tea, yoga breaths and excercise. I have a village of remarkable friends and family who refuse to accept losing me. I have a will to keep going and loving and living every day. I believe large amounts of laughter is a great medicine as is my wine and my chocolate and my giving in to tears and fears when I need them. I guess I believe it has all helped and oh yes- I believe that I am very very lucky!

Three years in August, that is wonderful. It is great you have such a good attitude, a great support system, and the will to keep loving and living each day. I would say you are very blessed. May you have many more years to celebrate. In peace and caring.

I think your post is the closest anyone I have ever read here has come to describing a formula for survival. You are one smart lady. I hope you have many more years of laughter, love, and happiness. Wish I could personally give you a hug. You sound like a great gal.
