If you could have just one thing in life, what would you wish for?
I would wish for my life!
Two years ago today, I finished my cancer treatments… yes, the year that followed treatments was even more difficult than during, but what a celebration to be done with treatment! When I got home late this afternoon from Relay for Life book signing this morning, then rehearsing all day with NHS Dance Company, I found pink balloons in my room. It was mom’s way of saying, “I love you… it’s a special day!”
I think I will gather stories from other survivors, and ask them what they did to celebrate their end of treatment. Maybe they taped pink balloons and sticky stars to their heads and danced to “Funky Town?” Maybe they wore Mickey gloves, or maybe they carried a huge monkey donning a chef’s hat, apron, and a basket of cookies.
Or maybe that’s just me.
I know for sure that I am unbelievably grateful to be here.
