    Other Care (Follow up scans): It has been 2 years cancer free:) He is engaged to be married. Here is this Mothers challenge. His last scan was supposed to be in May. Should be every 6 months. He has had excuse after excuse. He has health care. I have pleaded, begged, cried, ratted him out to his fiance' . This is serious. Screening is important. It can spread to his lungs. I don't know how to let go? He is 27 but he is still my boy. It breaks my heart. I worry and feel alone. Someone please tell me how to let go and just let him make his own decisions.

    Decision Point (My son did not want to go thru the 4th round. He believes the chemo damages your heart . This treatment has stayed the same for 60 years. I pleaded for him to go to the Mayo for a second opinion. They recommended one more round. He said no and went)

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Same treatment again. 4 rounds. He was very sick again. 9 months had now gone by.
