5 years of survival :)

Recommended Posts

When I was diagnosed right after surgery on 10/2/2003 was told I was stage 3A and that I had a 30% chance of living 5 years. After a spread to both lungs (10/05) , and a surgically removed metasis to the brain (11/06) I am a Survivor of 5 years. I Thank God for my blessings and good fortune.

As the great Theologian Rocky Balboa would say "It's not about how hard you hit, it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward."

Fighters fight.

I have had so many friends come and go on this site, and I realize that could very well be my fate as well....But today I am thankful and I celebrate.

I am certainly blessed and I praise God for that. I hope He keeps me around quite a bit longer.

Wow.....I am way more than a day late to THIS party, Joe, and I am sorry. Great news and so glad to celebrate your 5 years with you. Keep rolloing in the same direction so we can be doing the same thing in 5 more. Congratulations. Maybe we will cross paths at NIH one of these days.
