Hi Lisa,

Thank you for sharing your great news of your NED status! That is most definitely inspirational to hear! It's been three years also for me since my dx- I'm not NED, but I'm doing pretty well (I think based on CEA tests, anyhow- we live from one scan to the next, as you know). You've been through the wringer with getting a second cancer too, but here you're at NED status now. There's HOPE!!! *May I suggest that you change the subject title on your post to "stage IV and now NED" (or something like that). Reason I'm saying that is that there's been so much difficult and sad news on the board lately with people not doing well, that I know many are discouraged & by seeing your title- well, they may think it's more bad news & not even read it. If you could catch their eye with something so they'll know it's good news to read- that'd be great for everyone!

Again, so glad you have good news to share!

Take care-
Lisa
