More authors have been sharing cancer diagnoses and treatment with their readers in recent years and it is always good to read an example of hope rewarded – as Norman Spinrad supplied in a public Facebook post today:
Just came back from Sloan Kettering, the 5 year CT scan came out clean. What this means is that is officially called a cure for my cancer. What that really means is that the cancer I had has not metastasized after 5 years, meaning I have no more chance of getting another cancer than anyone else. What it does not mean is that I’m immune. Being cured of cancer once does not confer immunity. And I am enormously grateful to my oncologists Dr. David Ilson and my surgeon Dr. Dan Coit. The best of the best.
