Celebration Associated with Lung Cancer. Posted on December 17, 2011 View this journey (5 Experiences)

I learned I had cancer the week of my 50th birthday. Ick. Celebrating my birthday now really is a "more birthday" event. It also marks this journey.

When my hair began to fall out because of chemo, I shaved my head. So did my daughter. So did my husband. There is nothing greater than complete moral support!

Each day I wake up and celebrate this second chance. It has been almost four years since my cancer journey began. My commitment is to live each and every day as if it were my last because we just do not know what may happen.

I believe that cancer survivorship is about attitude. Do not give up the fight. Stay positive and understand that you cannot control much of the journey. So surround yourself with those who are experts (for your care) and only those who have your best interest at heart. Count your blessing each day even in the face of fear. Attitude is everything!
