Topic: Clear Scans!

It's official, received call from Dr Estfan from Cleveland Clinic today that the PET/CT scan show now signs of the tumor.  This is a miracle. He reminded us many times that the treatments my mom was receiving was palliative and the only way to cure was surgery. Surgery was not an option for her due to the location of the tumor. He did caution us that it could come back, but she is cancer free at this time and that's is good enough for us.  Thanks everyone always for your support!

We NEED stories like this! Thank you so much for sharing!
Another proof that palliative is just a word invented to try to put us in boxes, and we DO NOT belong in boxes!! Life is not black or white.
