  • 2 Year All Clear!

    Just had my 2 year all clear after 3xBEP - what a relief!!

    Hoping it stays this way in the future...

    It's never fun to go through treatment and everything that it brings and this community is a special place.

    Thank you so much for sharing your experience and giving your support!!

      Hey Joe, Somehow I thought you'd been around here longer than that, but congrats on the milestone. While we are never 100% out of the woods, at 2 years clear, you are seeing an awful lot of daylight. Hope it just keeps getting brighter as the years go by.
