    Yup, great feeling that. Mom’s cancer was treated successfully with surgery alone, but Dad needed chemo. Both in their `80′s now…

    That is a huge milestone.. Good on your mother for choosing to undergo the treatment and enduring it (a reportedly very unpleasant experience), good on you and your father for supporting her, and good on the medical scientists that paved the way for there to be a treatment. Here’s hoping for continued improvement in your mother’s health and continued advancement in cancer treatment.

    I remember when I was 15 and my dad was diagnosed with a form of cancer on the roof his mouth; a cancerous lump. I remember all the anxiety we went through until he got it surgically removed and everything came up clear.

    It’s good to hear as well that your mother recovered from this Jen. I imagine it’s providing you with a lot of much needed relief.

    (((hugs))) if you want them. :+)

    That’s wonderful, Jen! Hope it’s gone for good, and all the best to your mother for the recuperation process!

    I’m extra happy to read it since my mother was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in her intestine last week with CT scan and treatment coming up (almost 20 years after surviving breast cancer). I’ll keep both this post and your previous, more painful posts in mind in the coming (insert period of time here).

    Jen, I just high-fived my cat in response to this news. She has no idea why, but I like to think you have her support anyway.
