I began my fight with brain cancer almost eight and a half years ago. I was first told by my doctor that i was going to die. I laughed and told him you dont know me very well. Anything you tell me i cant do i will do just to make you eat your own words. I have fought long and hard three surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. I have never given up my fight. After my last surgery to remove three malignat tumors, I began treatment for previntion of the tumors returning as they have two other times before. Well today my life was change in a way that will never be changed again. Today starts a new for me. Today, after waiting on results from my doctor, I had an appointment that would change my life forever. The doctors have completed a bunch of tests and read me the results today. For the first time since the begining of my fight I have the privilage of shouting " I AM CANCER FREE. I BEAT CANCER" I have been told today that they will be upgrading my status to cancer free and no longer just in remission. The doctors told me that after all the test it shows no signs of cancer in my brain. Today I can now say that my life has been granted a new start.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
