Good News.

A month after my surgery, I received the news I wanted…I am clear of cancer. The preliminary report looked good, but because my doctor is the best, he sent my slides on to a Johns Hopkins melanoma specialist and he confirmed that the margins around my surgery are clear.

I am unbelievably grateful. I feel such a huge sense of relief. God is good and I cannot even begin to express my gratitude to the legions of people who prayed for me and reached out to me.

I will continue to need follow up care, just to be on the safe side….but today is a good day. Today I celebrate that I found the right doctor. Today I celebrate the I am well loved. Today I celebrate that I can grow old with the people I love. This has been an extremely stressful and scary time, but it was also a gift. It is wonderful to reflect on what is important to you and to be able to prioritize love.

“A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.” Proverbs 17:17

  1. This is great news Ginelle. I recently was diagnosed with prostate cancer, however it is a very small amount and after a second biopsy there was no cancer detected at all. My doc said the best thing is to be biopsied every year. I do need to remember how lucky I am. To be living in a country where, despite how fucked up the health care system is, I have access to excellent medical care. So many here and in other countries do not. Keep on living your awesome life.

  2. This is such wonderful news. We are rejoicing! And I love your quote, “A Friend loveth at all times and a brother is born for adversity.” That’s who you are to us. With love always!
