I'll be contacting all of you later today.
My mom, shown above, is a 7 year lung cancer survivor! She had quit smoking 8 years prior to her initial diagnosis of terminal lung cancer, and after additional testing was determined to be a good candidate for lobectomy. After surgical removal of two lobes in her right lung, radiation therapy, and the passage of time, she is in great health and she is my most treasured valentine.

Fantastic!!! Thank you Cindy!!! That is wonderful to hear about your precious Mom!! I wish my Dad's cancer had been found earlier. Perhaps he would have survived too. We lost him almost six years ago. Thank God your Mother was healed and you can still enjoy and hold onto her.
As a matter of fact, please give her a big hug from me too!!
