2 year survivor and counting

This week is the 2 year anniversary of my debut into the world of cancer! I entered Cleveland Clinic on May 1, 2006 for chemo and started my scary journey through a world I had no knowledge of until that day. Of course I had learned all about it in nursing school.... but that did little to prepare me for what I was about to experience. All of you know the harrowing details so I will not go into depth, instead I am focused on the positive. I AM A SURVIVOR, YES I AM! And even though it was a rough journey, It could have been a lot worse. I have seen two of my bone marrow buddies succumb to the same disease that we all fought so valiantly. They are my heroes. They fought until the end. I am a survivor and I live my life as a survivor. I am a different person than I was going into this fight. I look at life a lot differently. My days begin with thanking the Lord for one more day to call myself a survivor. I savor things I used to take for granted. I am an Angel Mentor to those who are beginning this frightening journey. I thank the Lord every single day for all of you who were there for myself and my family and still are. There is a reason I survived and I will make a difference in the lives of the people I touch. Yes, I Can!
