One year ago I had a surreal oncology appointment! I cried joyful tears on my way to the appointment. It was the first time I felt like I’m going to the clinic because I HAD cancer, not have cancer. All my procedures, blood work today, exam, everything looked GREAT. “Beat it” came on and I thought yes I did beat cancer! I can’t express the thankfulness I’ve felt from the community getting me through, it truly was a village effort! My kids feel like they have their mom back! I still have days we’re I’m tired and feel scared and am working on getting my strength back, but it’s just part of the process.
Lastly, two years or so ago our mailbox broke and has been hanging on one hinge a lot. My husband, Matt, being so involved with kids, household stuff, and being “mom” a lot never got to it. He joked that it was a metaphor for our life. We’re just barely getting by, holding on. Yesterday a neighbor or someone fixed it for us- no idea who. It felt like a sign of where I am. I’m healing, being fixed, moving on to what I’m supposed to do. Love to you all, life is good, cherish it, create joy! Looking forward to speaking and raising money to help families get through their cancer treatments and hopefully find a cure in the near future!
