    It's been 7 years since the end of his final chemo cycle. Now his only concerns are girls, swim team, his hair and, well, girls.

    Great news!! Keep it going Tyler.
    Won't be long until swim team and his hair drop off that list.

    Wonderful news. Do the doctors believe he can now put this behind him for good? I certainly hope so.

    Not to jump your thread but my ex girlfriend / always friend Robin ,an RU grad and fan, is 1 week clean from 4th stage ovarian .And I was her caretaker. Watching the oncological process was fascinating. Progress is happening every day folks..Spank and I have seen it first hand. Go Tyler. Go Robin. Go RU.

    Is Tyler scanned annually at MSKCC, or somewhere else? They still plan to do my scans once a year moving forward, with no immediate plans to stop. One of the many reasons I opted for MSKCC over some of the options in NJ.

    Thanks everyone! This is the type of news I always love to share. Snapped a couple pictures last night in front of the tree, that's Tyler standing next to some short schmuck.

    [​IMG]

    Yeah, and then he'll have another list!
    Yep, the docs think his risk factor is pretty much non-existent at this point.
    That criteria
    Is one I will never meet.
    Except at my wake.
    Just amateur hour
    He can't run with the big boys
    @Knight Shift and I rule!
    Ain't that the truth?
    That is also great news! Best of luck and keep us in the loop.
    I don't think they're doing scans now, but he comes in yearly to have bloodwork done to test for a variety of factors.
