    Anniversary

    Celebration

    I celebrate every step in my cancer adventure. We celebrated the last treatment, the appointment when my Dr. told me I could resume my life!, the first time I could style my new hair, and every anniversary of my diagnosis day is celebrated as a victory. I remind my friends, far and wide, to eat a cupcake in celebration of the miracle of my survival! It was a group effort....many prayer warriors, nurses, caregivers, and others played important roles in my life. I want them all to celebrate with me! :-D <><
