Checking in approaching 13 year stage 4 survivor

Postby mymom » Fri Mar 15, 2024 8:53 pm

Hi all- checking in. Some of you know me and some don’t. Just saying hello. Mom is good. As some know may 2011 diagnosed with Mets to liver, October 2015-June 2022 NED. Resurfaced June 2022. Did chemo. Her ablation October 2023 went perfectly - discharged same day. Was on portal vein so wasn’t easy but the surgeon got it all. As of today still clean. Mom is now 77.5. The treatments do take a toll but she’s enjoying life and she had a seven year break. She’s also just getting older. She’s coming with me to Italy in July.

I always want to share her success because in may 2011 we never would have imagined she would be with us in 2024. It was some dark days. thinking of you all.

Congratulations. So happy for you. My mom is 75 and fighting stage 4 lung cancer. It's so sad. My son went to visit her for his spring break. She pushed herself and hang out with him. But I know she is feeling really sick from chemo. She lives in Europe. I just hate cancer. Planning to spend the summer with her. Hope she will still be alive.
