Big Smiles Today

Update – December 13, 2016

I am really excited to share this news today.  My tumor has responded positively in the right direction.

The image on the left, shows a CT scan taken November 9, 2016 before treatment began.  The purple area displays a white clouded area known as Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma.  The black area signifies the air passage ways.

Now take a look at the CT scan on the right taken today.  The white clouded area has started to diminish.  The black area shows an improvement of the air passage way.  This means the tumor has responded and has started to shrink.

The Anderson’s are smiling BIG today!

    1. Hi Nicole,

      That is awesome news today. We don’t know each other but I am a recent cancer patient in remission and I didn’t know if I was going to see another Christmas. Faith and willingness along with friends and family got me through this so that I could see another Christmas and many more.

      My thought and prayers are with you and Craig. YOU WILL BE SMILLING A LOT MORE SHORTLY.

      God bless and Merry Christmas to you and your family.

    1. All the best to you and to your family! Am wondering if Craig has needed to contact someone (in hockey) who has been through a similar situation so as to get some hockey-husband support? If he hasn’t already, it would be Dominic Moore and Darryl Sittler…..

  4. God Bless you Nicholle and Craig i am so very happy for you both .
    I have been there so i know that it takes a lot of courage and being
    very positive at all times . Wishing you the best .

  5. Sending all positive thoughts your way. I hope you continue to destroy this, ive always been a huge senators fan but now I’m a fan of yours following this journey hoping that things keep moving in the right direction. Stay strong!! Positive thoughts from oromocto new Brunswick!

  6. Congratulations! I am a firm believer in prayer and positive thoughts (and also laughter) so keep strong, keep positive, and try to find something to laugh about every day! God Bless you and your family!

  7. Hi Nicholle, Fabulous news on the eve of the holidays!
    I am a heart valve replacement survivor so I understand to some extent the struggle. I have been blessed to have a support system to help me maintain the strength and positivity needed to get beyond the difficult days. You seem to be blessed to have that as well, with Craig and family.
    Bless you and stay strong👍👍👍

  8. Wonderful and encouraging news… Prayers in numbers bring positive results.. You Go Girl!!!! Stay strong and kill that f#%#ing cancer. Thank you for sharing your journey with us… Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. You will beat this. Hugs!!!!

  9. That is so awesome. I know how stressful it is when you go for a follow-up appointment with your oncologist for scan results … sitting in the waiting room trying to remain calm when your stomach is knotted and you can hardly breathe … and then receiving positive results … absolute relief and sheer joy. The amount of shrinkage on your scan is amazing. Now you can breathe a bit easier and find comfort in the love and support of your family this holiday season. Prayers being sent your way. 🙏🏻 Kathleen
