Becky Healing From Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer!

Becky with her Oncologist, Dr. Susan Hines.
From Becky...
This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it!

Even more than usual, this is a great day! We got the results back from my latest scans (bone and CT) and the news was awesome! The cancer has not grown or spread! There appears to be healing going on in my bones!

If you have never seen the results of a nuclear body scan (bone scan), it is actually quite fascinating. As you look at the skelton, all the areas that are infected with cancer light up, or glow.
 
My scan from June of 2014, revealed that my entire spine,several ribs, hips, femur and femur necks had been taken over by cancer.

Comment of the Month!

Jerry Lamonica has left a new comment on your post "Open Discussion Thread – Part Two": 

As a long time follower of this case I have some questions. I originally believed the family was killed as a result of home invasion or a carjacking. After the arrest of Chase Merritt, like all of us I have waited and waited to hear the truth about what happened to this family.

The McStay Family Grave Site

From a reader...

"I visited the place where the remains where found 6/12/2015 while on vacation and took these pictures. I noticed a couple things that stood out in a couple of these pics and I was wondering why they were there. The cross that is laying flat on the ground and why is their rope laying rolled up on the rocks? Your welcome to share these pictures but please don't post my name or email address."
