    Helping Darrell Live!!!
  1. I'm glad there is still people here that remember us! I remember too well how important it is to hear the suvivor testimonials! It gives us hope and everyone needs hope and a positive outlook! My husband refused to change his life because of his cancer, he continue d his routines and even drank his beer at night until the radiation made his throat to sore and then he switched to wine. Even when he was too weak he still went to all of his sons football games. Lots of time it was against what I thought was best for him, I was able to talk him into wearing a mask which wasnt easy. I think in
  2. TS, , Thanks! I will say a special prayer for you and your family! Just don't ever give up! I didn't think my husband had a chance but he beat the odds and so can you and others! CHRISTY
  3. Kasey, Thanks for the toast! I am so glad to see you are a suvivor also.. I hope and pray for your continued Good Health! Like my husband says even though he has aches and pains from getting older, at least he is getting older! We now have one 3 year old grandson and his daughter is expecting another baby in Nov. 2011. They live with us. Our grandson Kyler is such a joy to my husband and I. I will look for your pm... Christy
  4. Hello, some of you might remember me, others I'm sure don't know me. I just wanted to let every one know that my husband is still cancer free. He was a stage 3B back in 2003. This website really was my life line in keeping my sanity and gave me soo much support and education on LC.. Darrell has been released now and they aren't even doing CT Scans anymore. This kind of makes us nervous but they will do one anytime he feels the need for one. They said no reason for him to get anymore radiation than he already has had. They consider him cured.. but it is always in the back of our minds.. but
  5. I don't know how many remember my husband. His name is Darrell Rinker.. Well he is a cancer suvivor.. I don't know for sure if 5 years is a cure or not. I remember early on reading or hearing that somewhere.. Well at that time him and I were not married but now we have been married 4 years.. and he will be cancer free as of October 2008 five years..

I just thought is was time for a new update. Darrell has been doing so good!! Hope all of you had a nice memorial weekend!!
  8. I just wanted to come in here and post a update for Darrell my husband. Some of you might remember us. He was dx soon after his 50th birthday in May, 2003. I'm posting this in hopes that this will give some of you that are going through the worse time of your life, some hope. Darrell is still in remission. He has come so very far and we thank God everyday that he has been in remission now for over 2 1/2 years. We might be a long way yet from that 5 year mark, but we've learned to live for today and not to worry about tomorrow! Which is hard to do after battling lung cancer! You tend to live c

Hes watching Jag right now, his favorite show! I think its on 3 times a day! blaah! but oh well.. I just want to thank everyone for being there always!!! Everyone on this site is so great!! I would reccomend it to anyone that needed it! It is really a great support system! I will try to visit more often. Good luck to

I feel so bad now reading some post.. and Norme I have thought about you so much.. I'm so very sorry that you are sad and you are having such a rough time, I can't even imagine losing darrell, and we've only be together for 6 years. I feel as thoug

  12. Sorry to all, but I've been absent from the site for a long time... I need to be in order to survive this for now... Selfish I know, but I have to be what I have to be for him.. and I'm sorry to say I can't be here and be there for Darrell.. We got married June 14th in Panama City, Florida... Things have been really good, at times I can almost forget hes had or has cancer. Hes been cancer free for 7 months now and I pray it continues. Only God knows!! Darrell expects it to come back, I pray that it won't, but deep inside I don't know... Sorry its been so long, I've totally avoided this site,
