10 years cancer free!

Postby gsousa14 » Sat Jun 27, 2020 1:41 pm

Hello everyone, it’s been a few years since I’ve been on here. I just wanted to let you all know that I just made it to 10 years cancer free..
I’ll never forget how scared I was in the beginning, but you guys are the ones that helped me get through some dark days.
I just waited to come back, and give others some hope!
Take care, and god bless all of you!
