Re: 10 yrs stage 3b 45 positive nodes.....

Dear Michele

I am so happy you continue to do well. Maybe we can meet up in San Antonio if you still go. It was so nice spending time with you and your mother for a couple of years in a row. You helped me so much when I was first diagnosed and I think of you often.

Big hug to you!
