Hi all -

Wishing you all good health. Today is the 6th anniversary of my colon surgery for Stage IV CRC. A bump or 2 in the road, but I'm still doing well. Lot's better than I ever thought when told on June 7, 2005 that I had liver mets.

Take care,
Betsy

Congratulation! I am going for my 3 1/2 year scan tomorrow and feeling a bit worried that Ive been so fortunate so far that I may not get good news again. Your story reminds me that it is possible to continue to get good news. Soooo happy for you.

Smiles,
Dawn

"A bit worried" is probably putting it mildly. You deserve to freak out. I always did. For weeks before. I hope everything is good. Keep us posted.

Stay up!

That is just the best news, especially since you are stage 4, as I am, its been 2 yrs since I finished my last chemo, and over 30 months since I was cancer free, and still going strong. Still struggle with after effects but I am here to tell everyone about it still...

Thanks for sharing...and continued great health..

HUGS
