Hi, everyone. I just wanted to come back to this board that helped me so much during my journey and offer a message of hope to all that are currently battling. I remember yearning to hear stories of survivorship when I was newly diagnosed and so want to offer just that now that I'm blessed to be considered a FIVE year survivor.

Hang in there, fight like heck, and know that THERE IS HOPE!

Hugs, love, and prayers.

Dear Carrie,

Thanks for re-visiting and offering encouragement.

I remember how my daughter celebrated at the 5 year mark and in August it will be 17 years for her....so, yes, congratulations!!!!!!

Be well/safe.

warmly,

Steve
