  • Post chemo CT Scan- All clear!!

    I had my CT Scan on Friday, then went to see Dr. Vaughn at PENN today- Great news! The tumor in my right lung has disappeared!
    I am officially all clear of cancer, and now on surveillance!

    The next step is to start getting into shape- it seems I have a bike ride coming up in August!

                      I just had my second post chemo CT Scan visit - I am still ALL CLEAR!
                      "Cancer Free" has such a nice ring in my already ringing ears!
