2012 Cancer Free!

My journey with cancer included surgeries, chemo, and radiation.  After all that, I needed plenty of follow up with my oncologist, including quite a bit of blood work.  As a survivor, I still have to get  blood tests and mammograms  Today was the day for my mammogram.  For some reason, I was particularly nervous.  But the good (I should say great!) news is that I am cancer free.  Did you know that over a woman’s lifetime, there is a one in eight chance she will get breast cancer.  Breast cancer can be a highly curable disease if detected and treated early.  My cancer was found during a routine, yearly check up and a mammogram.  Talk about a shock!

I wasn't on social media during my journey-but I wish I was.  There are thousands of survivors and kind people who connect with you. Unfortunately, there are also too many more suffering this terrible disease.  


Thank you to my friends who continually send me love, kind words, and prayers.  I truly appreciate you.

Until next time!   be kind, be strong, be honest
