  1. Thank you for your remind.
    Both, Mom (81)and Dad (69) died from that cancer, doubled with an heart condition.
    As for myself, I strarted the tests in December 2003. One “polype”, removed on testing, was diagnosed malignent. So a new test was done a few weeks later to ensure that it had successfully been removed, which avered O.K.
    Then, I had to go throug every 3 years for 3 sequences, then, every 5th year.
    Last February 8th, I went through again, with the result of zero “polypes”.
    I was told that with those excellent results, it would be the ultimate test of my life. SO GOOD NEWS!
