Thank You. All of You.

I have only ONE more chemotherapy treatment left!! Wednesday, October 12…..

I pushed through breast surgery and four months (eight treatments) of preventative chemo treatments with the help of a top-notch medical team, two very strong and loving mothers/father, an adoring husband, two sunshiny children, a loyal chemo-attending best friend, gift-bearing-support-offering-visiting-besties, warm-my-spirit visits/coffee dates with other dear friends, dozens of  spontaneous pick-ups/drop-offs/playdates for the boys, surprise gifts in the mail, weeks and weeks worth of delicious and nutritious meals delivered to our door, dozens and dozens of notes-emails-&-greeting cards of encouragement, and prayers/positive thoughts from so many friends, acquaintances, and even people I may not have ever met. I am still overwhelmed five months later. 

I could not have managed ANY of this disease without help from many, many people. My personal strength was truly fortified externally. I have been humbled and overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of others. Often from places I least expected. Thank you. All of you for your piece in my healing process. I have never been alone in my fight. 

I look forward to completing this  journey. After a brief treatment reprieve, I will begin radiation (November). Five days a week for six weeks, which should get me through the holidays. The ultimate Christmas gift being my heath and my life. And, a fresh new year – cancer free.

You have never been alone in this fight … even if there was no fight you’d still never have been alone. You have been there for others since we were small children … even when you didn’t realize it your smile, your humor and your positive attitude about well – everything! – got others through their own fights. So no matter what – if you need any of us, just holler & we’ll be there.
