    Celebration (Birthday): Many many many birthdays and many kids of my own later... almost 40 years of being cancer free. I never appreciated what that meant until my mom was diagnosed with cancer.
    I was blessed by God to have the right people in the right place at the right time to diagnose and treat my small body. I praise God everyday for the gifts he gave those in my life.

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): I had a very successful surgery when I was only a few months old to remove a malignant tumor from my spine.

    Oh No (Diagnosed): Having lost my Mom to lung cancer in Feb 2008, I was not interested in hearing that my Dad was newly diagnosed with prostate cancer at the end of 2010. Not to mention his frustrations with the cancer battles... having lost his wife of more than 30 years and losing his Mother to leukemia when he was in his late teens. I think he only decided to try treatment (minus hormone therapy) because of my begging...and I do know how selfish this is of me.
