      I have been blessed with my fourth clear PET scan.  It has been two years since my last surgery. 

      I have been stage IV since 2001.  Eight major surgeries, lost my right kidney and two years of chemical treatments. 

      Thanks to all of you for your help and inspiration.

              Chris,

               

              Thanks for sharing this wonderful news!  It gives hope to so many.  I remember you and pray that you will remain NED forever.  After so many surgeries and treatments, I know we feel the after effects but it's so much better than the alternative.

               

              Celebrate!

               

              Stay Strong

                          Wow, I just read through your patnet, and I am amazed at what you have been through.  Glad to see you are having a nice disease free stretch, may it last far into the future.  Still have the numbness?
