    1. You are blessed. My husband and I give to the ST Jude Children’s Hospital. It is so sad to see what they have to endure. I lost my sister and my older brother to cancer and my younger adopted brother is now dealing with non-Hodgkins lymphoma. I am currently under a course of PET/CT scans for lung cancer screening. In the first CT I had they found 5 very small lung nodules. Three in my right lung and 2 in my left. The PET scan they did next did not show an uptake of the medicine that is suppose to show if they are growing. I’m hoping not. I will be followed for 3 years if it is okay. If there is no growth or they go away, I’ll be cleared then.

      1. Thanks Phyllis for the good work you’re doing to support the children’s hospital. And the effort you’re taking to study about cancer. I pray that the results from the scan you took are positive. I am so inspired by the positive works you’re doing. Thank you!
