    I never participate in this group but everyday I look forward to receiving the update. It has helped me so much. Next week I will finish radiation after having surgery and chemo. At first I noticed that a lot people seemed to get cancer again in this group and I got a little worried. Then someone replied that the ones that recover usually don't continue with the group. I immediately calmed down and looked forward to the group. You are all so helpful and kind. Thanks.

      Cancer cells in the body cause cancer to return. Not attitude or thoughts. Its sounds like you have had the best treatments so you have the best chance of cure. But know this as you complete your treatments. Every single day there are advances in cancer treatment and we are closer and closer to a cure for all cancers. Do something really wonderful for yourself when you complete your treatments and look up and feel thankful- let the sun shine on your face.

      I think you are right, that many people go through treatment and go on with their lives and don't participate in these kind of support groups. I am 1 year past treatment and moving on with my life but I also don't want to forget what I've been through, appreciate what I have, and hopefully give back a bit by supporting others who are just facing diagnoses or treatment options or questions. This is the only "support group" I participate in. All the best to you!

      I'm so glad you were able to get support here throughout your treatment. And even if you don't post often, you do still participate by reading -- personally that's why I post; to try to help others as often as I try to get answers to my own problems, concerns and occasional venting. May you have "no evidence of disease" now and always.
