"I've finished my treatments and now I'm waiting, holding my breath for that 5 year anniversary. Like Ed McMahon is really going to drive up that day and present me with some kind of certificate. Somebody asked me if, during this period I was considered 'cured' or in 'remission.' Neither one is accurate. I describe myself as 'Waiting to exhale.' My docs have me down as NED, or 'No Evidence of Disease.' So now, whenever I get that jumpy, anxious feeling when I feel an ache or a pain, I attribute it to 'NED-Head' and just keep going."
