100% Cancer Free!

My mummy, the fighter, has been battling stage 4 appendix cancer for the past few months. It is a rare, painful and often swift cancer.

After meeting with an oncologist who gave her no chance, we found the most wonderful blog. Carolyn Langlie-Lesnik started after her own grim diagnosis and triumphant survival. The lack of information about appendix cancer spurned Carolyn to begin the website.

Without Carolyn my mom would not have a chance. Carolyn is an angel on earth.

The appendix cancer website lists various treatments and doctors that specialize in the rare cancer. This is where we found our Boston specialist.

Yesterday my brave mummy endured an almost fifteen hour surgery and came through well.

Today my mummy is 100% cancer free!

100% cancer free!

100% cancer free!

Happy tears are now replacing the sad tears.

Thank you to my sweet neighbor, bus stop buddy and fellow blogger Ruth Dynamite for honoring my mummy in her blog today! Please take a peak at Ruthless in the Suburbs
