    Celebration (stabilization): knowing what to expect, doing routine dermatology visits quarterly to find and treat new skin cancers has become the new normal these past 5 years...glad to be alive and able to keep checking things

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): always got a little jacked by the synthetics they added to boost my energy...chemo was weekly IV concurrent with daily radiation

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery to remove cancer that has spread): surgery went 15 hours to remove cancer and do reconstruction on my face....lost all nerves in left side of face, and mouth only opened about an inch...still like that...hard to move food around while eating, and I have to eat much more slowly and pay attention to avoid accidental choking.
