Hi everyone – Brenda and I just wanted to let everyone know that recently she became a 5 year survivor! And on top of that, she decided to finally take her surgeon’s advice and get her MRI’s done yearly now instead of every 6 months. Even though Brenda has done really well in the past five years, she struggles at times; especially since the passing of her sister almost a year ago. We really wish that Paula was here to celebrate 5 years with us but we know that she is smiling down on Brenda and encouraging her to strive to stay well. I am very proud of the hard work Brenda has put in to be here 5 years later and thankful that she can be here to share this with all of us.


Jeff

Congrats, as a future RN I know it can be a challenge. And I know I don't even know a fraction of the struggle you both have gone through.

Congratulations for both of you! I'm at 3 yrs, 8 months myself for uterine cancer, and I know how exciting the 5 yr mark is - and how hard the whole cancer experience is on family, like you, as well. Brenda, you, and your family are in my thoughts and prayers!

Congrats :)

& thank you for sharing such wonderful news!

My mother is currently fighting brain cancer, she had neurosurgery done 5 months ago and finished her chemotherapy with radiation therapy 2 months ago. She is on a smaller chemotherapy regimen and my family is doing everything we can to help her improve her health & well bieng.

Cancer is such a heavy thing to deal with and I salute you and your wife for the love and devotion to each other that helped her recovery.

I wish you both many many more healthy years to come!

Thanks so much everyone, I read these to Brenda and she was overjoyed and thrilled at the outpouring of support. We actually don't have a lot of people close to us (weird families, what can you do) so this sort of thing means a lot!

JoeGREEEN and driftwoodhunter - Keep us all informed and our prayers are with you too!
