September 5th 2002 I got the news by phone that I had "no evidence of disease". It's referred to as "Dancing with NED" (No Evidence of Disease). On September 05th 2012 I will have reached the 10 year mark and I can stop the annual invasive test that I need to go through (cyctscopy). This year mine is set for October 15th...and yes it really does fit through that little hole and no it's not that painful (then again I've endured about 25 or 30 over the past nine years so I probably have developed a tolerance for it.). It stings a might afterwards though. Everyday is a good day...today is just a bit better than some, and I thank God and everyone that stood by me and helped me get here. Now it's time for pizza.
