    Unbelievable Greg !!!! If any person needs to shout, it is YOU!!! and all of us Whatnexters, will shout with you, !!!!! I am in AWE, Greg. I want to say-THANK YOU, JESUS !!! I pray that does not offend YOU, GREG, or ANYONE !!!! I don't BELIEVE any man could have gotten through All of this, alone, Greg. All I had was surgery, and Radiation, once, and that was TOUGH. I am so HAPPY to be privilegde to read about this great healing, GREG. It does encourage me, Greater IS HE THAT IS WITHIN US than he that is in this world, Greg !!! God's Mercy, and the determination of you. Thank you for sharing with me, Greg, sometimes, it IS hard when going THROUGH. I have feelings now, and think, "What is THAT?" you know. Soon as October comes and I can get my other side checked again, I will relax. It is strange to me that Medicare won't let us recipients have a Mammogram but, every 2 years.When there has been a mass already there to let it not be checked for 2 years. That is as long as it took the Ductal Carcinoma to grow in the right side, I need to have that peace of mind. Thanks for listening. I am Blessed, too !! And Cancer free, too!!

    Hi Greg
    Thanks so much for sharing your experiences.
    I just finished 6 months of chemo and radiation.
    And I have to agree chemo is much more challenging.
    I was very uncomfortable for about 3 weeks after chemo. So I had a few days of feeling sort of normal. I am glad I am finished for a while.
    Cheers to you and your continued good health
    Michael

    Greg - I agree with above poster if anyone needs a shout out it is you! Thanks so much for sharing your journey and responding to mine so quickly. My BF had Hodgkins in the late 80s then again early 90's pretty much described to a tee what you went through! He's still here cancer free but plagued with the thought it will return. Many good years ahead to you Greg and your mind seems just fine :) After all we aren't getting any younger heee heee lets blame memory loss on that too!

    It is journeys like yours that keep us inspired. If you can do it, we can do it. We will beat my husbands cancer, and no matter how rough our journey gets, your story will remind us that there is light at the end of the dark tunnel. Keep well my friend XO
