No active treatments for my lung except for the three-month CT's which have dwindled down to once a year now. I did have a bout of kidney cancer a year and a half ago which was treated with an ablation. Not a fun thing to go through but better than losing my kidney and no aftercare except for 3-month MRI's. My last MRI six months ago showed the tumor to be dead and barely there anymore. I have one more MRI scheduled for next month. If that remains clear, then I have another in six months and if clear will be released...praying for that. I feel I've been extremely lucky and blessed. I don't wish this disease on anyone, but it sure makes a person look at their life in a whole different perspective. We value each and every day the good Lord gives us and try to make it the best day we can. Thanks for replying to my post.

So happy to hear of your success! I never know how people want to count when they say they are five-year survivors, for instance. But when you say cancer-free, that means that you have been out of active treatments for five years?

However you measure it, it is good good news!

Just wanted to share with all of you that my latest CT can is clear, meaning that I am at last five years cancer free. I thank God every day for giving me these last five years. I have a wonderful team of doctors who have kept close watch on me and pushed me into surgery and doing all kinds of things I didn't want to do. They knew me better than I knew myself in many instances.

Thanks to all of you for your support. I'm not on here every day but I do peek in on you.

Hugs,
Sharon
