ROJoson’s Cancer Survivors Registry
This site contains brief notes and pictures of cancer patients who have been treated by ROJoson starting 1980 (year ROJ doing general surgery and surgical oncology residency in the Philippine General Hospital) and who are considered “cancer survivors” using an operational criterion of at least 10 years in remission after treatment.
Hopefully, this site and the cancer survivors contained herein will serve as an inspiration to current and future cancer patients and will debunk the thinking that having cancer is always a death sentence.
The cancer survivors contained in this website have given their permission to have their short stories and pictures published for reason of wanting to help others, that is, to give hope to present and future cancer patients. They deserve a “thank you” appreciation.
Note: Anytime, anybody wants to have his or her stories and pictures changed and even removed, this will be carried out as soon as possible.

As of December 11, 2012, I have a registry of 50 cancer survivors. I have reached my target of 50. I will not set new target but I will continue to serve cancer patients and to update my registry.
As of June 8, 2013, I have a registry of 64 cancer survivors. I will continue to track and increase the number of cancer survivors under my care.
