Hello All:

Just wanted to say that it was 9 years ago that I went for a "routine" hysterectomy and found out that I had cancer.   Grade 2, Stage 3a.    I went through treatment and have had some ups and downs and some surgeries since then but other than that still NED at the momemt or at least what I have is currently contained.

Celebrating with you all!   Hugs!

Hi, Kathy,

I am dancing with you!  I look forward to hearing you announce your 10th year anniversity and so forth through the years. If I was in Pennsylvania, I'd suggest we go out and celebrate!


Hugs to you!

It is SO wonderful to hear the great news and to know that you've beat this thing.  What an inspiration to all of us.  So glad you celebrated.  I will be excited when I hit the one year mark from chemo.  I hit the one year mark from my hysterectomy, now am looking forward to Jan. 2, 2015.    So happy you have shared with us your story and your wisdom through these posts.

Wow, I didn't think anyone on this site had survived for that long.  That's truly amazing.  Keep up the good fight.  I once knew someone who went for a breast reduction surgery and the routine biopsy required by law after that surgery found breast cancer.  It was a good thing that woman wasn't happy with her self image and her back pain from carrying around her heavy breasts.  Sometimes our body talks to us in odd ways, and we just have to be paying attention, whether subconsciously or not.  Glad you did.  Hope you went out to celebrate!

Thank you all for celebrating with me!    Everyone here means so much to me.   You have always been there to hear me rant, comfort my concerns and worries, offer advice and understanding, and now I am glad you are also here for celebrating too!    I am so happy to celebrate with you all.   Your kindness, thoughts, caring, comfort, advice and information is a great blessing to me.   I treasure all of the friendships I have made through this site.

So now that all that is said.................Lets Dance!

My best to you all,



P.S.   Just for Laughs:    I thinks its kind of weird that one of the fonts on these posts is called "terminal".

Thank you, Kathy, for inspiring us all to dance with you! I agree- the ladies here are wonderfully caring.  Now that you've pointed it out,  I refuse to use the "terminal " font!  LOL
