Final Proactive Cancer Treatment

Well, dear friends, after a lumpectomy, 6 months of chemo, 36 daily sessions of radiation, a lovely month-long trip to Europe, I came back and had -- ahem -- some organs removed which had high potential for developing cancer because of my BRCA1 diagnosis. All of that is behind me now. I had this incredible surgery THROUGH MY BELLY BUTTON! just yesterday, and was doing so well they kicked me out this morning. Feels great to be home and know that no evidence of cancer was found and that my chances of many years ahead have just been improved. Except for occasional check ins and screenings, I am done with the most horrific year, beginning with the loss of my beautiful older sister to breast cancer. Except that my DD married her Prince Charming, everything else was, as I said, horrific.

But now I'm back and once I'm feeling up to it, I think we should have a SURVIVORS' CELEBRATION! Who's in it with me?



As I've said before numerous times, I couldn't have done it without you. You are the most amazing group of friends, pals, cheerleaders I've ever known. The best support group I could wished for. Thank each and every one of you for all you've done to help me on this grueling road. You are fantastic people! Love each one of you.

I'm with you and ready to celebrate!!! Next March will be nine years cancer free.

Wouldn't it be great if all us survivors could get together in real life?

BYW, I'm so happy for you! We have so much to be thankful for.

Well, I'm in! Your journey has been interesting for us and informational. I'm so glad you are now looking at this part of your life in the rear view mirror. I think you should write a book! There are things that we have to deal with in life that we are TOTALLY unprepared for and your experience is one at the top! You can now help others by letting them know about the journey.

So happy for you!
