Kasey Posted September 20, 2012 Share Posted September 20, 2012 Hello to all you new folks I don't know and to any of my 'old' friends from years ago. I am moved to share a HUGE milestone I've reached in my life. It was exactly 8 years ago today I was diagnosed with advanced stage lung cancer ~ Pancoast tumor to be exact. I have posted 'My Story' which chronicles the tenuous journey I began all those years ago. Throughout these years I have met, in person or just in cyberspace, so many LCSC members. Some just don't come here anymore for whatever reason. Others, sad to say, are no longer with us. And some are still around here, though perhaps in the shadows, reading and cheering LCSC members on. I have experienced 8 springs full of flowers that I was told would not happen. So much has filled my life these 8 'bonus' years that I cannot even begin to be able to share with you all. But one thing I can never fail to do each anniversary date is to give a great big SHOUT OUT and MEGA THANKS to Miss Katie. Yes, it was Katie's website all those years ago that gave me the info necessary to enable me to be here today. DonnaG's response to me opened up doors that led me to my life-saving surgeon. And mhutch, not sure where she is today, led me by the hand to the most remarkable place on earth ~ to me anyhow ~ my DisneyWorld, Nathional Institutes of Health. So to those who think a website such as this is perhaps not a big deal. Let me say this ~ BIG DEAL ~ LIFE-SAVING deal. Thanks to all of you new, old, young, patients, caregivers, supporters. In one way or another you have all been part of this remarkable ride I continue to take. HOPE always. Kasey Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
