My husband is cancer free since 7/31/2007, 11 years almost. :D
We live happy, simple life, we don't think about his illness anymore,so I don't post on this forum anymore...
Be strong, never give up ! Believe you can be cured. He had stage III B colon cancer ( see my signature).
Good luck to everybody !

Awesome! They stopped doing CT scans on me. So happy for both of you.
I'm just a dude who still can't believe he had a resection and went through chemo (currently 6 years NED). Is this real life?
