Some observations and a few thoughts:

NED X 15
NBD X 15
Each of the 5 grandchildren has become 15 years older. No new ones.
The 18 year old girl I met on the beach (Icewoman) will be 73 this fall.
The survivor rates for each Stage of RCC have increased over the last 15 years..
Ice Tongs are no longer used for RCC Surgery. Ice picks are no longer used for RCC biopsies.
I will be 75 next year.
I am so old DiVinci himself did my surgery.
May each member of the club be a survivor for not just 15 years, but for many years beyond that

Stay away from restaurants serving Kidney Pie

To the best of health for all<

    Age and Survival

    have given you a wicked sense of humor. Best wishes on all the good stuff in your life, as named above.

    I'm trying, but haven't caught you yet, altho we've been married 53 years. Only 11 years on the survival scale and my youngest gr-daughter will be 11 in a month.

    Way to go "young man."  Hugs,

    You've done well

    To have posted 2500 messages on this forum is also well done.

    You were the first to respond to me, too.

    What a great idea!

    The best place to eat a Mediterranean diet is in the Mediterranean! Cruise or destination foodie travel spot? 

    I'd say "I'm in," but I think the closest I'm going to get to the Mediterranean is a jar of Greek olives I've got in the fridge.
