It saddens me about Liza. She is/was a great lady. I enjoyed talking with her on facebook when our times would match up.

I corresponded with Liza early on as we were both early in our treatment. I really liked her, and it made me so sad when all those diseased lymph nodes were discovered. She obviously had a very aggressive cancer. We will never know how much more aggressive treatment to match the aggressive cancer would have helped.

Very sad again . . . but she is out of pain and in peace.

Try not to worry... 57 is a lot and they were clear that's great. Just keep an eye out for any kind of rash on your neck and any other nodes popping up. If something does worry you call your dr. Period. Do not wait. Hugs - it will be fine.
