    Anniversary

    Celebration

    October 2018 marks 10 years since my last diagnosis. That one was for stage III squamous cell carcinoma of the right tonsil. I didn't think I would make it out of this one during the time from diagnosis to treatments. But, like most things that we have to face, I made it through it and it wasn't as bad as I thought it could be. I must say though, that I was "lucky" in that I didn't have to have some of the more serious procedures done, and I didn't lose body parts or functions of my mouth, throat, neck, like a lot of people do.
