Thyroid Cancer Survivor Lourdes Gonzalez – 25 Years in Remission
Ms. Lourdes Gonzalez was 55 years old in 1986 when I operated on her thyroid papillary cancer in Manila Doctors Hospital. I did a total thyroidectomy. Postoperatively, she just received thyroid hormone, up to present time, 2011. I saw her again on December 5, 2011, during the 24th Annual Christmas Get-Together Party of the Manila Doctors Hospital Cancer Crusaders Club. She received a prize for being the oldest and longest cancer survivor present during the Get-Together Party. She is 81 years old and 25 years in remission. We both thank God for this long remission.
