5 years is a huge milestone. Congrats to her!
I'm just a dude who still can't believe he had a resection and went through chemo (currently 9 years NED). Is this real life?

I thought exactly the same. All old gang. :) Good to see you.
My kids are almost 12. I need to change my signature. Last year was busy with all the homeschooling pros and cons. My kids are in hybrid learning at this point.
My next appointment is nearing. It has been almost 5 years since my past surgery.
Luckily, no Covid. Vit. D seems to help.My coming trip to NY and first flight since 2019 makes my a bit uneasy.
I need to come here more often. I hang out in HAI Facebook group to help newbies a little. However, everything is changing so much that what I know seems outdated.
All the best!
