Hi,

I joined this board back in May when my husband was first diagnosed with AA3. I literally went back and read almost every Astrocytoma post ever made on this board. I read A LOT of your posts and they were a beacon of home. Then I realized that you had not posted in a while and I began to worry about you. Seeing that you posted this month and that you are five years out and doing well just made me so glad. I know that may seem odd from a stranger but what can I say. I celebrate anyone who is striving and doing well with this diagnosis. Anyway, I just wanted to tell you I am so glad you are still doing well!

What changes in yourself have you noticed? If any of course..

I have also followed Dodgerblue's posts since my Oligodendroglioma grade three diagnosis.  My 5 year mark will be on January 7th!  So far no recurrence.  It is comforting to read about other people doing well in spite of this terrible condition.  It makes me feel like I am not alone on this strange journey.  Best wishes.

5 years is a big deal! That is so great that you are doing so well. When my husband was diagnosed it really knocked me sideways. He is young, was 31 at diagnosis. We have a little boy. Somedays when I read others sucesses I begin to have hope for our future. Other times I am still filled with such worry and sadness. Brain cancer seems so different from other cancers. So much uncertainty from month to month.

Anyway, cheers to you!!

I know exactly how you feel!  There is always hope.  Take things one day at a time.

Hi. I Have been wondering the same thing. His first name is Ben. My now 27 year old daughter will be 4 years out in February. I am terrified. Seeing Ben on here kept me grounded. I only go on this site when I really need reassurance. Ben. Dodgerblue. I pray you are ok. I so agree with everyone else. You are always a beacon of light & hope. Whenever I hike anywhere near the Appalation Hills I think of you & your journey. I pray you are ok & just taking a posting break. ????

Hi all! I’m alive and well! Just haven’t been on site as much as in the past. This site was an incredible resource for me years back in terms of answering treatment questions, side effect questions, finding long term survivors, and unfortunately meeting many whose loved ones lost their battles. Everything I read served me in some way, and I’m very happy to know that I could pass some of that along. I’ll try to log on more often :) Dodger
