    Is anyone a survivor of ALL over 50 Years??

    I am rapidly and happily approaching my 50th anniversary of being cancer free. Was wondering if anyone else out there is a long-time survivor and who happened to be at the Boston Floating Hospital in 1964??

      Congratulations! I hope you plan to celebrate well and long...I am a 2 yr breast cancer survivor...very familiar with the Boston Floating Hospital as I have been a Boston resident all my life, my sister was treated there as a child for a serious heart condition and has done remarkably well...as a pediatric nurse practitioner in local community health centers throughout my 40 year career I have had lots of dealings with Floating and it was, and remains, a wonderful institution...I wish you good health and God bless!
