    Hi everybody…. I just returned to Hawaii from the Mainland where I had my 6 month check up at the Siteman Cancer Center, Washington University in St. Louis, MO……. Still holding NED at Stage IIA — 2 years and 8 months out from initial treatment …… When I was diagnosed in August 2008, it was hard, nigh impossible, to conceive being NED going on three years…… 

    So doing the happy dance while praying for those who are battling active disease ……

    Aloha,

      Hey Bob!

      Happy dancing with you!  Hallelujah!  I've been stage 3b and mel free since Nov 2008.

      Much to be thankful for and always in prayer for those who, indeed, fight and are care-givers, and those who grieve.

      Congratulations and keep dancing!

      Grace and peace,

      Carol
