Journal entry by John McGrew

Those were the two words spoken by my oncologist during my PET scan results meeting. I could tell he was smiling under his mask. When he pulled up my scan on the computer,not one tumor was detected! The last 4 (of16 tumors) were sent to tumor Hell.  So after hundreds of hours of chemo and over 60 radiation blasts, I am in remission!  However, after a lengthy meeting, we jointly agreed to stay on a chemo regimen for the next few weeks. I have learned to mange the side effects of said chemo and know what to expect.

I have to say that all of  the prayer warriors, friends and family have totally kept me strong through the last 2.5 years. The text messages, phone calls, social media postings have not gone unnoticed and I appreciate every single one of them. Thank you all.

Kimmy has been my savior through this ordeal and much love goes out to her.

Again, thank you for your support.
