Update: November 2017 – 26 years in remission – No recurrence.
Twenty-two (22) years ago, I did a modified radical mastectomy on Ms. Merlie Lazaro, who was 33 years old then, in Manila Doctors Hospital. She had breast cancer. She did not receive any additional treatment after her operation. I saw her recently (December 7, 2013). She is now 55 years old, with no clinical evidence of recurrence. She is now 22 years in remission. We both thank God for this long remission.
