    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Hearing the word cancer scared the heck out of me. Luckily I had an awesome support system who really helped me.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Chemo was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do in my life. I was sick a lot and just felt run down all the time. There were some days I didn't want to move because it felt like a mack truck ran over me, backed up, and ran over me again for good measure!

    Unfortunately I lost a few friends I had become close to due to their illness.

    Finished treatment

    Celebration

    I was elated on my last day of chemo. It was one of the greatest days of my life. My dad even surprised me and rented a limo to take me home! It was great!

    Birth

    Celebration

    I was told I would never be able to have kids because of all of the medication and chemo. This was completely devastating to me because all I ever wanted to be was a mom. I now have a beautiful little girl and a handsome little man and we are thinking about a third in a couple years.
