  • All Clear! 2 years, Stage 1, Pure Seminoma

    We just past the 2 years mark "all clear" doing active surveillance!

    Also, my son and his wife will be proud parents (again) to a baby girl in 4 weeks! My daughter in law was 4 months pregnant with my grandson, during my son's TC diagnosis.

    I want to thank Mike for this site ( almost rhymes!) when I registered I was worried (hence the name) but I reached out to a few members and your experiences, support and knowledge were so valuable and eased the initial scare.

    thank you and good health to all,
