NOT a "bucketlist" item!
As of May 13, I am 7 months chemo-free and still in remission. My oncologist graduated me as well, stretching my doctor appointments out to every few months instead of every month. :-) My calandar has no cancer clinic appointments until....JULY!!! Awesome!!!!
I know not everyone gets such a happy story to their fight with cancer. KC teases me that I've never really associated myself with cancer- "I have Leukemia- not Cancer." Yea, yea; I know- Leukemia is a type of cancer. On those days when it is hard to "Hoover it (aka Suck it up)" and be strong, it is an overwhelming blessing to be lifted up by those around you. I have found a plethora of heros not only these last 3 years, but in my lifetime. For all those quiet, loud, passionate, steadfast, diverse heroes out there who are enduring trials themselves or standing by their loved one: Celebrate the little things and never give up! What an amazing thing it is to watch people serve friends, family, and even strangers by donating time, resources, and sharing their love and compassion with people who need so much during such times. From someone who has received so much, I thank you. I am a better person for knowing you, and am inspired to be even more.
