|WINGS OF HOPE 2017 -12 CRANES|
Tomorrow (July 29, 2017) will mark the 12th anniversary of waking up from surgery and hearing,"You have Stage 3B Ovarian Cancer."
It is still hard for me to believe it has been that long. When I was first diagnosed, even though I was told to not read the survival statistics, I did. I wasn't so sure I would make 5 years (30%).
When I recurred in 2008 I thought for sure I would never rid my body of the cancer. Yet, I did, due to the skills of the amazing surgeons, gynecologic oncologists and nurses at the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey and the love and support of family and friends and other reasons I don't know.
I am especially grateful for my husband, my children and their spouses, my grandsons and countless family and friends for their love and support these past twelve years. You have provided me with the best memories anyone could ask for. Thank you all.
Looking forward to blogging about my "cancerversary" for many years to come.
Every day is a Blessing!
