Seven Years and Counting

I am really thrilled to be posting this entry.

On Sunday, July 29th I will celebrate my 7th "cancerversary".

I can still remember the words Dr Lorna Rodriguez said to me in the recovery room of RWJUH late in the morning of Friday July 29, 2005. She said,  "Dee, I am sorry. I found ovarian cancer. You were stage 3B. But I will do my best to treat you and make you well. " And she and Dr . Gibbon did just that not once but twice. They are my lifesavers. Thank you Dr. Gibbon and Dr Rodriguez.

And of course I can't forget to thank the best caregiver in the world my husband, Nick, my children Terry and Matt and all my family and friends. Your love and support helped me through the toughest parts of this journey. I Love You All.

Every Day is a Blessing!
