Remission - LesIsMore

Celebration Associated with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL). Posted on September 7, 2012 View this journey (4 Experiences)

After 11 months of chemo, the cancer was completely gone, both in the abdominal tumor and the spine marrow. As you can imagine, I was extremely happy and grateful to the entire VA Long Beach team and to my family and friends who supported me and prayed for me throughout the ordeal. In fact, I wrote a letter of thanks to the VanGuard, the official magazine for the VA, and it was published. Shortly afterward, the VA held a special thank you luncheon honoring my doctors and nurses. (I guess the VA doesn't get too many thank you letters like the one I wrote.) So far, after four annual CAT scans, I remain in remission. Since I was diagnosed, I have been able to enjoy life to the fullest, including celebrating the birth of my two granddaughters and my 45th wedding anniversary to the Women's Army Corps member I married while serving in the Army during the Vietnam War. Life is good!
