9 years out, Stage 4 NEDville

Postby ranger » Mon Aug 13, 2018 8:54 pm

I'm still here! 9 years, minus some stuff I didn't need, like appendix, gall bladder, some of my colon, a liver met. I always told myself that cancer didn't belong in me, so once I got rid of it, it would stay gone.
Cancer, you can't kill everybody. So there.
