Breast Cancer Survivor Melchora Gino – 15 Years in Remission
Ms. Melchora Gino was 50 years old back then in 1997 when I operated on her breast cancer. I did a modified radical mastectomy. The histopathology result showed invasive ductal carcinoma with two armpit lymph nodes positive for spread. She took tamoxifen for 5 years. I saw her today, October 13, 2012. She has no evidence of recurrence. She is now 65 years old, 15 years in remission. We both thank God for this long remission.
