Hi. I am 58 years old. I was diagnosed at at the end of April 2009. Within a week I had a Radical Modified Neck Disection, followed by Radiation and Chemo Therapy. I am on monthly checks with the Oncology Team. So far so good, but I would rather be doing something else.
It's now November 2010 and I am still here. Just cleared my 18 month check with no sign of cancer.
Hey..26 months....still here......30 months and climbing...
Woohoo!!!! It's been 40 months since surgery and I'm still cancer free. There is hope, but it does take a good amount of luck.
