Jennifer Griffin: “I Am Officially ‘Cancer Free’”

JenniferGriffin.jpgIn a blog entry, FNC’s Jennifer Griffin — who’s been battling Triple Negative breast cancer since her diagnosis last September, and who had a double mastectomy last week — has good news:

I can honestly say that Greg [Myre of NPR, Griffin's husband] and I now know what it feels like to win the lottery…It is now official: there was no cancer in my lymph nodes (7 in all were taken out last Tuesday — none had cancer…)…

[And] the tissue that they took out of each breast had what they call “a complete pathologic response” to the chemotherapy…That means that in 2-3 years time if there is no return (which is statistically almost impossible at this point) then they can declare me “cured” — not a term they use lightly in the world of oncology. I am officially “cancer free”…

More later when I come down from this high. Thank you and thank God. And, yes, I now believe in miracles.
