    MY SURGEON WAS ONE OF THE TOP SURGEONS IN SOUTH WESTERN WAHINGTON AND OREGON. THE HOSPITL CARE WAS OUTSTANDING A ND AND MY FAITH IN OUR LORD WAS A MAJOR FACTOR IN MY HEALING. I WAS CANCER FREE UNTIL 2010 WHEN I HAD A SMALL SPOT ONTHE LOWER RIGHT LUNG. AT THAT TIME I CHOOSE RADIATION OVER CHEMO. MY RADIOLOGIST DID NOT AGREE BUT I WAS ADAMENT AFTER SEEING THE EFFECTS ON MY SON. I HAD SIXTY DAYS OF RADIATION AND THE MOST WONDEERFUL STAFF AND DOCTOR WHO FINALLY AGREED THAT I WOULD NOT HAVE DONE WELL WITH CHEMO. THE AMERICAN CNCER SOCIETY IN VANCOUVER SOUTHWESTERN WASHINGTON ARRANGED FOR TRNSPORTATION TO AND FROM MY DAILY TREATMENTS, AND THEIR COUNCILING STAFF WAS VERY HELPFUL AND INFORMATIVE. FOR ME MY STRONG FAITH IN GOD AND THE WONDERFUL CARE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ME BEING TOLD THIS YEAR I AM CANCER FREE.
