Post subject:  My favorite GMB4 survivor stories, and why

Let's just damn those statistics for now. Here are my five favorite GBM4 survivor stories (who aren't on this forum, because of course, they're my very favourite survivors - eg http://www.btsurvivor.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=1095&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=).

Kate 5yr survivor - positive lovely lady, who just seemed to have the right attitude from day one.

Natasha King 9yr survivor - lovely story written by her mother - and amazingly Natasha had a baby in 2007.

Robert McClean - was a 8yr survivor in 2003 - present status unknown - just seems a like a good Aussie bloke who got on with his life.

David M Bailey - 13 yr survivor whose GBM4 became a turning point in his life and allowed him to successfully pursue his dream of becoming a singer/songwritwr

Jerry Kline - 5.5 yr survivor - who declared "total war" on his GBM4. I like this guy because he just got on with his life, barely skipped a day of work.

There are many other GBM4 survivor stories out there, but these are the ones I find most inspirational right now.

If you've got a favourite survivor story, why not add it here -- let's keep this positive, and concentrate on thriving, not just surviving.

Thanks for the links.

Not surprisingly I found Natasha's story very interesting. I haven't heard of someone with 50% of tumour remaining surviving for this long.

The Scott Norris video was also a valuable first hand account of his experience and coping mechanisms.
