Re: PET/CT tomorrow

It might be good to update your signature as well, as it does not reflect the new info. Just a short note to say that I agree, in principle, with most of what roadrunner is saying, but I also have concerns about your signature: In particular, I have an issue with your use of the acronyms NCI and TM...

Re: Now live: Strive for Five on Substack

... Especially across the first few months, I hope it [my substack] will be something that might be of value for newly diagnosed patients - especially since at the beginning, we didn't share much between the diagnosis and my first chemo; and what I did share wasn't quite as honest as I became as tr...
