Stage 4 since May 2011- another clean scan 5 yr clean

Postby mymom » Tue Sep 08, 2020 10:55 pm

Hi all- not on here much anymore past few years but like to stop back from time to time with updates. my mom had her 6 month scan and still clean. it will be five years IN October My mom has been clean. She was diagnosed at stage 4 in May 2011. Four years of multiple surgeries and chemo. Last ablation on liver October 2015 and nothing since. We are very thankful. We never thought we would be here in 2020 when we heard she had CC that spread to the liver. Hope is key and researching everything you can so you are well informed. Never say it can’t be done. Sept 6 she turned 74 and you would never know it. Love to all.
