    Finished treatment

    Celebration

    Jesi, my daughter, came back from her sentinal node biopsy and additional tissue removal surger with good news. Her biopsy was negative. We thank God that it has not spread. And the additional tissue was negative for cancer, meaning it was all removed. Another prayer answered. She is supposed to get skin checks every 3-4 months for the next 1-2 years to check for any new spots.
