    Finished treatment

    Celebration

    May of 2009 I finished treatment and looked forward to cancer free future. It was not to be, bit I don't ever regret celebrating that milestone.

    Lost loved one

    Loss

    Experiencing the loss of a loved one to cancer during my second recurrence really made it hard to stay positive. Talking with other survivors helped most.
