Topic: May I Intrude?

October 1st, marks my 3rd anniversary of being Cancer Free from another type of rare Cancer. I had a GIST (Gastro Intestional Stromal Tumor)  the size of a large grapefruit, removed along with about 12 inches of intestine.  Great ONC, great Surgeon and no sign of anything as of July. Like many of you I get Scans every 6 months and a yearly colonoscopy. This Cancer is also very rare, not much research done and if it returns, surgery is the only remedy, then a chemo pill which I did not have the 1st time. The surgery was 1 year before Teddy passed and I really didn't think about it much as I was so busy with him. I owe my strength and positive thinking  to Teddy and to this Board who have all helped me to be who I am today. But, still not sure what I want to be when I grow up! My heartfelt wish is that each of you could make the same post.....CANCER FREE!

Congratulations, Lainy!!
I'm so excited to wish you a happy birthday!! Yes, it was not cc, but it is still a cancer, so I don't think of it as an intrusion. Especially since you are a member of our family.
Huggs!!!!

I am so happy you can post "cancer free"!  You are my idol.  You deal with things with such grace Lainy.

Here's to many many more posts from many many more people stating that they are cancer free.  And even more important, many posts of people saying how much they are enjoying life and making the most of their time.
