Hesitantly offering a link to stories of pancan survivors
I'm Eeyore, not Pollyanna, so although I respect the upbeat attitude that many people on this board have, it's not natural to me.
That said, I've noticed that many people here have written, more or less, something I've been saying since the shock of my diagnosis: "Some people obviously beat the grim stats, and there's no reason why I shouldn't be one of them."
I know that longevity under these circs requires far more than a good attitude — that luck of the draw is a huge factor (for ex., do we have great drs. and great insurance?). Nonetheless, I want this for all of us — so in case these stories can help, here they are. (Most of you probably know this site already, but just in case.)
