Breast Cancer Survivor Melchora Gino – 15 Years in Remission

Ms. Melchora Gino was 50 years old back then in 1997 when I operated on her breast cancer.  I did a modified radical mastectomy.  The histopathology result showed invasive ductal carcinoma with two armpit lymph nodes positive for spread.  She took tamoxifen for 5 years.  I saw her today, October 13, 2012.  She has no evidence of recurrence.  She is now 65 years old, 15 years in remission.  We both thank God for this long remission.
