So thrilled for you to hear this. Amen. Thanks for sharing the hope to others still in the midst of treatment.
Thank you, Mary!
I pray for Jesse every day since we had surgery during the same time. I think about you guys a lot. I hope we could meet one day again. I will have next scan round in mid January.
There are always so many people at MSKCC. On Sunday in radiology office among others I met an older Dr. K patient . He was 13 years under her care. After 82 chemo treatments and recurrences he has been NED and off chemo for over 10 years. Overall he was in a very good condition and very, very positive. He was a messenger of hope to us all sitting there. Some were still on chemo, some freshly out, different steps on the journey. Dr. K infected us all with her energy and battle spirit.
I also met Katja- the radiology nurse who remembered me. I cried in her arms during my first scan. She is our great cheerleader.
All the best for you and Jesse,
