Three years cancer free
« on: January 24, 2020, 02:39:40 pm »
I hope everyone is doing well.

Just thought I'd post an update in case anyone remembers my cancer ordeal a few years ago.   I haven't been on this site much lately, but you all were a great source of support and encouragement when I was first diagnosed with HIV, and then again with cancer.  I'm happy to say I'm doing just fine.  No sign of recurrence after 3 years.

It was no fun, but I got through it.  Hopefully none of you ever have to find out what it's like.
