I’m back checking in after a long absence. I have been NED for colon cancer for 10 years now (same as Green Lake Girl...congrats, sister). I had a surprise brush with lung cancer earlier this year that was caught during a routine follow up for the colon cancer. I had surgery, no other treatment required and all is well, fingers crossed. Life is good and I hope stays that way (or improves) for all on this Board.
