Gosh, I come here and read the "news" and it feels like I've not been away. Of course, that's not true...so many of us are gone. It's hard to believe I've been posting on this board since 2001.
I still miss Susan tremendously; I think of her often. Cathi's struggle was so long and so painful to watch.
But in July of this year, I passed my 11th anniversary. To quote Martha "that's a good thing." Also in July I finished my 5 year course of Femara. Yippee, that was a cause to celebrate. The onc tells me he only needs to see me once a year now. Who knew in 1998 when I was first dx'd that there would be an 11th anniversary??
I know, I know, everyone's body is different, but I think the above news is encouraging for all of us. Be strong and think positive. The CURE is coming.
There is no doubt that painful as it sometimes has been to read, this Board has been a tremendous source of knowledge and support. Thank you, MK, Bev, and Lori for your good thoughts. It's funny that under our names there is a designation "veteran member," is that ever true.
As ever, Luci
