Good evening all.

I'd told myself a long time ago that I'd come back each year, and post an update on my present state.

Looking in my history, my last post was 2 years ago. So, please pardon my laxness.

I am a 30+ year MM survivor. I've had 6 surgeries, 4 years of chemo, and it's now been 14 years since my last recurrence.

Here's my last post-

In case you'd not heard of it (Radical Remission Project), here's my bio on the Radical Remission Project page.

I want to do this because I remember how scary it is to go through this, with little to no support. I am living again. I've returned to my former profession-- something I was told would never happen. As such, I'd left for 20 years. And in all honesty, I only returned because I couldn't find any other work. And furthermore, I never thought I could handle the work load, due to its strenuous nature.

Don't give up hope. My initial onset was summer 1987. It's now 2018. Hang in there!

Best Regards/wishes to all.

One heartbeat at a time.
