Dear Cancer.....See, I TOLD You I was STRONGER Than You!!

Well, our prayers have finally been answered! Looks like I am all clear!! Cancer-free!! Adios and don't EVER come back here!! Hit the road, Jack!! Bye, bye, bye!!

Got the report for my PET scan today and it looks good!! They said there was a lot of surgical scarring and radiation scarring on the right side of my neck, but all in all looks good! There was a question of whether or not my vocal cord on the right side was paralyzed, but they did a scope today and both the surgeon and radiation oncologist said it was clearly moving and not paralyzed. So I will have to go to voice therapy to try and strengthen that. Worse case scenario is surgery down the road to help fix it, but therapy may strengthen it on it's own.

So I have a LOT to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, more than usual! Thank you to, friends, my team at Dana Farber...for helping through this terrible ordeal once again. I pray that three times is a charm and that I am done with this dreaded disease once and for all!! Now I KNOW I made the right choice to go to Dana Farber!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

  1. I'm sure many thought all was fine once the ultrasounds and needle biopsies came back OK. That WAS an early Christmas in Oct. for Kris! BUT...we could never be totally sure until the definitive PET Scan showed NO CANCER!! And that it did today!!

    Kris was very nervous to hear the results and thought no one else was nervous. Well, Kris...a little secret...we all were nervous...but we had great faith that you HAD beat it...and thank God we were all right!!

    What a wonderful Thanksgiving this will be….and a great ending to a very stressful year!!!

    We love you so very very much and so proud of you! We know this sure wasn't an easy ordeal...but you did it!!
