Five years ago today I was officially in remission for astrocytoma brain tumors. After five years, with no new cancer cells and I no longer in remission but cured. Astrocytomas are the cells up the supportive tissues of the brain and I was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer. It was a really hard diagnoses and I was terrified. I had an amazing team and got the best possible care with gamma radiation,chemo and surgery. It was grueling and painful but it worked. Today is a celebration! Please celebrate with me Reddit, because I am one very lucky, and very grateful lady!
