National Cancer Survivor Day is Today: What's your story?

Posted by wifemom3 @wifemom3, Jun 5 4:49pm

Today is a celebration of life. I am stage 4 CRC and I am a survivor.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Cancer group.

Three years ago, I had endured the wild ride of Acute Myeloid Leukemia with all its challenges and was just a couple weeks from getting my bone marrow transplant to keep me in remission! With the help of my team at Mayo-Rochester and my still anonymous stem cell donor giving me a dose of his immune system, I’m alive and thriving. I’m a cancer survivor! 💙 💚

Hello, @elliwiemers, and congratulations on being a survivor of NETs of unknown origin! So glad that you posted.

As I see this is your first post on Connect, I would like to invite you to the Mayo Connect NET discussion group. Here is a link to those discussions, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/neuroendocrine-tumors-nets/.

As a survivor of three surgeries for NETs I can join you in this celebration of survivorship. As I've shared my journey with this group, I've learned so much from the experience of each member.

Will you join our group and share with others about your journey?
