Breast Cancer Survivor Nenita Mercene – 22 Years in Remission
Ms. Nenita Mercene, from SanJose, Occidental Mindoro, was 43 years old in 1989 when I did a modified radical mastectomy for her stage-2 breast cancer in Manila Doctors Hospital. I saw her on December 4, 2011, at the 24th Annual Christmas Get-together of the Manila Doctors Hospital Cancer Crusaders Club. She is now 65 years old and with no evidence of recurrence. She is now 22 years in remission. We both thank God for this long remission.
