PET/CT Scan Resuts

PET/CT Scan Results

My Bone Marrow Transplant specialist, Dr. Nade called to read the official report:

"There has been COMPLETE RESOLUTION of previously identified anterior mediastinal hypermetabolic tissue. There is no evidence of metabolically active neoplasm."

In other words, the tumors have completely vanished. Poof. Gone. The scans are 100% crystal clear.


My radiologist, Dr. Krazny said:

"There is no indication of cancer whatsoever."

Not one blip. Not even a speck. I'm as fresh as a newborn.


My oncologist, Dr. Piro showed me the scans. The images were a cool blue, a peaceful blue. A vast empty void of pure, unadulterated pristine health.

I am absolutely, completely, without-a-doubt, you-betcha-britches cancer-free.


After 20 months of uncertainty and heartache, this is beyond Miracle.


All my love,
Christine


P.S. More later. I need to sit down and catch my breath!

Congratulations! I found your site through a convoluted series of circumstances, and I'm glad that I found your blog and that you're allright. More than allright as is evidenced by your most recent entry. Once again, congrats! I feel very happy for you. :D

Christine, Congratulations. What a journey we've both been on... but we had to travel on those roads to get back to LIVING our lives. A huge detour, to say the least, but worth the ride. I couldn't be happier that all your tests came out clear! Continue to take good care of yourself. Enjoy Life!! love, Nancy

THERE IS A GOD!! PRAISE GOD FOR CURING CHRISTINE AND LETTING HER STAY HERE ON EARTH TO ENCOURAGE MANY, MANY OTHERS TO HAVE FAITH IN WHAT EVER THEIR PROBLEMS ARE!

Thanks for passing this on to me!! My prayers for her have been answered.

You are next for the answer to prayer. Ask Christine to pray for you, if you have not already done so!

Love ya.

Christine,

Well it seems natural that you now have a new nickname, PC, for
Pristine Christine. This was just amazing and wonderful news to hear.
You have fought so hard for this diagnosis and now you have it.
Pretty incredible. Your family must be over the moon. Give yourself
some time to just enjoy life before you try to save the world, you've
earned it.

Christine Pechera = Miracle Child

You are, no doubt! I think I am going to fly to CA in August, find you, and rub my limbs against yours so that I can get some of those miraculous blessings. I am so thrilled for you but I must admit, you taught me a lot about taking on a different form of fighting. I lift you up to the universe in modeof tremendous gratitude for your blessings!!!!!

Peace and Love,

OH MY GOD!!! Girl, we have been thinking of you and thinking of you AND thinking of you (just a little bit). Wow, thank God and thank Him for you -- you are truly an inspiration, and your life is such a testimonial.
Can't wait to meet you one day. Never met a walking miracle before.
WE LOVE YOU, CHRISTINE!

Christine this is the most wonderful news!!!! We've been gearing up for another year of Cancer Camp and I didn't see your application - I went to your web site - and there it was the best news of my year! I so wish you were going, you are such an inspiration, but take your time and then go to Italy. Much love, Dr. Deb
