    Celebration (Pink Party/Birthday Celebration): After i completed my chemo, it was nearly time for my 45th birthday and i that was a milestone for me so i decided to do a pink cookout wear everyone wore something pink and also buy me gifts. lol. The cookout/pink party was awesome, everyone wore pink and the food me and my family had was delicious, bbq chicken, string beans, baked beans, potato salad, pasta salad, hot dogs, hamburgers, fish, meatballs, macaroni and cheese. A local Dj made me some cd's and we partied. I also had a pinata that i added pink prizes for men and women and also little alcoholic drinks which they loved. It was something i will not let chemo brain make me forget. (just in case, i took lots of pictures and also had a signature poster for everyone to sign when they came in)

    Radiation (External radiation ): I had 33 days of radiation weekdays. It was tiresome driving almost daily to get the treatment which only took 5 mins. This was almost a 30-45 min drive. Gas was expensive and that took a toll on me.

    Side Effects (Nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy)): the burning was the worse. i am taking medication for it and it is no longer in my feet, however, my fingers are getting numb as i type now. i deal with it because i need my job, i type at work, but when it gets really bad, i just stop and wait until the numbness is not as bad and start again.
