Just got a good news scan today. Diagnosed July 2010, surgery Sept. 29,2010. Will have surgery Next week to repair an incisional hernia, but compared to two years ago and what it could be, I’ll take the hernia! I am definitely blessed and owe my present situation to Dr. Choti at Johns Hopkins. He is the best. And his nurse Eden is a close second! A great team!

My husband Ron just went for his 5 year check-up and got a great report — still cancer free. We now will only be going for a yearly check-up for bloodwork. His CA199 was 9. When he was first diagnosed, his score was 1,200. We truly feel blessed and are enjoying life to the fullest.

As of Dec 18, I will be marking 16 years of being cancer free. It’s not been without a few bumps – I’m still having some liver infection issues – but my life is so good most of the time that I can barely stand it. May God bless all of you with cause for hope…

30 months now, still healthy and strong, still shrinking tumors after 37 rounds of chemo.
Still cancer without disease.

My daughter, Lauren just celebrated her one year on Aug. 29th. She is so brave and is fighting so hard to overcome this disease.September 19, 2012 at 2:10 pm #64600kris00jParticipant
I’m at 22 months and was waiting for some kind of surgery. My doc says I’m sick but I refuse to believe him. The surgeon just told me there will never be a resection, BUT…
I had stereotactic radiation and the cancer cells are barely more active than “normal” cells! It’s the best thing I could have heard. They will wake up “one day” but I’m hoping for years!
