Good News

My brother CJ was declared cancer-free this afternoon.

It actually happened earlier than that. This morning he mentioned to me that he had "the doctor's appointment" where he would learn about the results of his bone marrow biopsy. I asked him if he had looked at the results yet. I wondered since I had learned about the results of his last biopsy, even before his doctor did, through the online patient health portal. He hadn't looked, and told me he didn't want to know.

I wanted to know, so I logged into the My Health portal, pulled up the pathology report, and scrolled down until I read the words "there is no indication of malignancy..."

He just heard the good news, and gave me the okay to tell the world.

Thank you to everyone who has kept him, and my family, in your prayers. This experience has been a huge blessing in our life and has given us a multitude of opportunities to learn and grow.

  2. David,
    So glad to hear it, bro! I had a sister who, 20 years ago, did not have such a positive prognosis. But congrats, man. So glad to hear it.

  3. Yay!! What a blessing!
