    Finished treatment

    Celebration

    On my last day of Radiation, I was told by my doctors that several of his patients told him I was an inspiration to them because every time I would come to treatment I always smiled and said good morning to every one there. The nurses on my last day gave me a orange rose due to all the bright orange shirts I would wear.
