      Just posting to give a little hope to stage I and stage II (and any stage really). This week or next, can't remember which, is my 6 year anniversary. Isn't that great that its been so long I can't remember the exact date in August? I was dx borderline stage IB/IIA (2.0 on one path, 2.1 on the other), SNB neg. I'm pretty sure I'm NED, as I had a CT scan in June due to abdominal pain (turned out to be an abcess on my ovary and a major pelvic infection, which was all removed by a Gyn Onc and no cancer found). I go to MDA in October to gain my official NED status.

      Here's hoping for many more years of NED for all of us.
