Happy Anniversary to Me!
 
I just remembered last night that I have been cancer free 11 years as of the 7th of June. The funny thing is, most years I knew the date and remembered it everytime. This year it went on by and I didn't even think of it.
Anyway, to anyone out there fighting cancer or who has a loved one who is fighting it...there is hope. I'm proof of that!

Thanks for everyone's well wishes. I debated on whether to post this because I didn't want to seem cheesy, but it's the kind of thing you want to shout from the rooftops! :D
I was so lucky, what I went through was so much less than others do. At the time, of course, it was difficult and devastating. When I look back and when I hear stories of what other's have gone through it seems like it was a piece of cake, in comparison.
I was diagnosed with Uterine cancer at the end of May 1994. The recommendation was a hysterectomy and follow up radiation. I was 24 and had never had children. It was definitely a blow. I was considered 'cured' after surgery as the cancer was contained in my uterus and there had been no spread. The radiation was done mostly as a precautionary. The whole ordeal lasted about 4 or 5 months.
I would never wish what happended to me on anyone and wouldn't want to go through it again, but it made me a stronger person and truly appreciative of what I have and the people in my life. I learned you have to stop and smell the roses, or sit on the beach with a cerveza, cause life's too short and you never know what tomorrow will bring.
So enjoy your life and count your lucky stars that you are here to live it...the alternative sucks. :)
