I will say this, it doesn't matter to me because I refuse to associate with anyone who thinks that getting cancer was my fault. And if it does get someone who is lazy/fearful/uninformed to go get a scope and it saves their life... Then it's worth it

Our insurance (as do many I would think) will pay for it 100% with no deductible or copay since it's a preventative measure under health care reform. So there's absolutely no excuse not to do it! I have read way too many stories of people going for their screening 50 year old one and having cancer. It's just dumb not to go in and get it done.

I am 5 years out and currently NED. I do not consider myself "cured" from it.... I consider myself "put on notice" that it is there, in my life, and I need to be hyper aware and proactive in order to keep ahead of it as best I can, with the medical technology as it exists right now.Ktwirls wrote:we got it and we are cured from it. Is this tag line used for other cancers?
