    Hi suzqz, and welcome! You've found a great place to ask questions, get information, and share experiences. I was diagnosed with the same type of cancer; mine was stage IV and I was 58 years old. The good news is, I just passed the SIX YEAR ANNIVERSARY of that original diagnosis. Since my original diagnosis, I've had a couple of relapses. I'm currently still getting chemo but feeling good.

    Some time ago, I recorded a series of videos for WhatNext about my cancer journey. You and your Mom may find them helpful. I've included a link at the end of this message should you wish to check them out. My hair is longer now and I have a new knee but not much else has changed since I recorded the videos.

    WhatNext.com is a great place for everyone, from the newly diagnosed to those of us who've been living with cancer for some time - friends and loved ones too! While you're here at WhatNext.com, check out the questions and experiences of other folks here. You can find people who've had the same cancer, surgeries, chemotherapy and experiences should you wish. It's often reassuring to know others have been through what you're facing and thrived. I also recommend the PINBOARD - there are often humorous or uplifting posts that can make your day. Definitely worth checking out.

    In the meantime, I'm here if you have any questions or want to chat.

    Hello, GKGKeri! I see my friend Lynne has told you all about me but allow me to add my own welcome.

    You've found a great place to ask questions, get information, and share experiences. I was diagnosed with the same type of cancer; mine was stage IV too. As you know, survival rates are far better than they used to be. I'm glad to see you're proving that too.

    More than 6 years after my diagnosis where five years of survival would have been a miracle, I'm still here and going strong. Best wishes to my WhatNext family this holiday season and throughout the New Year!
