Hello Dear Ones,
A month ago I was in the throws of controlled fear waiting for PET scan results from my left lung.  My breast cancer could have metastisized and it seemed like a long wait and see time.  But fortunately it is just a benign nodule that we will need to look at periodically over the next two years.  This time has just reminded me of what wonderful support and love I found on the board 5 years ago, yes, 5; count them 5 years ago.  1, 2, 3, 4, 5   tongue .  I am so celebrating.  I couldn't have done it without you and I am blessed to call all of you "Friend".
Love to you all,

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: if one falls down, his friend can help him up.  Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

Congratulations on five years, Candy.  May you have many more years to celebrate with us!  Nothing so good as feeling lucky to be alive.

Congrats Candy, Five is a wonderful number. So happy for you. Even five, ten or however many years later they see something that calls for a watch, I know how awful that feels. Good to see five and your name, again congrats to you. Joyce

Congrats!  Hey Breastfriend!  We're five together!  So glad we're around an able to celebrate together.  You're always in my prayers.  I'm very gratified to read that your scare was for naught.  lets hear it for our favorite letter and number B-9!
