Topic: Milestone Reached

Well, I know this is about the cc and Mark but I still have a milestone I want to share.

As many of you know my then 19 year old son was diagnosed with thyroid cancer at the same time Mark was diagnosed with his cc.

My son had his surgery 7-11-13 where they took out 90 lymph nodes in his neck of which 30 were positive for cancer plus his thyroid and part of a blood vessel and some muscle that were affected. He had his one year follow up with his doctor today and he is still CANCER FREE!! I can't believe I get to (or have to) say that about two close people in my life. He saw the endocrinologist that is following him and other than needing to increase his thyroid medication again, he was absolutely fine. Four more clear checks and they will consider him CURED! There's another good word.

Thanks everyone for your positive support and thoughts through this. Love you all.
