In the "Good News for a Change" department

Five years ago, one of my fellow basses in the choir was diagnosed with a particularly nasty case of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The doctor told him his odds of survival were 60/40 at best, and the treatment involved chemotherapy so massive that he needed an autologous stem cell transplant.

Tonight, at choir rehearsal, he announced that his latest CT scan came back completely clean.

There was much rejoicing. :-)

There's been far too much crappy news recently; I figured sharing something good was called for.
