Beautiful Update ... Cured

Postby very worried husband » Tue May 02, 2017 12:20 pm

I never thought this day will come when we started our journey in January 2011, just a month after our wedding. After 6 years and 3 months of long struggle and continuous stress, I am happy to announce that my wife had her last appointment yesterday. She was declared as CURED by her oncologist.
Her CEA was 1.4 and the lung spots that she had in November 2016 Scans dissolved completely.
Since She was diagnosed @ 25, She will go to 6 months blood work for sometimes per oncologist and then will go from there. Our daughter is reaching 2 years next month and is a crazy little monster.
We do not have words to describe how grateful we are for all support we got here when we needed it the most. Hopefully I can report here baby number two in a year time. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
God Bless you all.
