6 years cancer free, stage IIIA

      Hi all!
      I do not post often but wanted to come on and share some great news. I had my 6 year scans yesterday and found out today that all is clear! I was diagnosed in 2018 with Stage IIIA when my son was 6 months old. I completed SNB, Wide Excision, and 24 treatments of Opdivo! I hope this provides some relief to anyone newly diagnosed. I can’t believe I am posting that I am 6 years clear. I feel like it was just yesterday I was reading every single thread on here. Prayers to everyone currently going through this <3
