Breast Cancer Survivor Gloria Solmirano – 35 Years in Remission

Ms. Gloria Solmirano, from Aklan, was 33 years old in 1983 when she discovered a 4-cm mass on her right breast.  I operated on her at the Philippine General Hospital. I did a modified radical mastectomy. The histopath diagnosis was comedocarcinoma with axillary nodes negative for metastasis.  She underwent postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy consisting of cyclophosphamide, methotrexate, and 5-fluorouracil.  I saw her on December 15, 2018 and there was no clinical evidence of recurrence.  She is now 68 years old, still in remission 35 years after her operation.  We both thank God for the long remission.
