My TENTH Anniversary of National Cancer Survivors Day


TODAY IS NATIONAL CANCER SURVIVORS DAY. It's one of the most important days of the year, for me. I simply can't believe that I can now say that I have lived for ten years with bone cancer. How can it be true? I have persevered. I have learned to live with cancer instead of despite cancer.

There are so many things that I want to say, but I am verklempt. I feel so very thankful and unworthy and blessed and...I just think that I'm going to have to wait a few days to try to process this thick swirl of emotions that feel. Today I am alive and that, alone, is more than I have ever had reason to believe I'd be able to say ten years later.

Glad you are living with us all

Glad you are here, and living is good, regardless of how the medico's feel about it. I have been thinking a lot about Sara recently, of Moving Right Along. She lived, including her tricked out new leg, right up until the end.
