5 Years!!! What a Miracle!

I never in my wildest dreams believed I would ever be able to say I was a 5 year survivor of one of the worst types of cancer, AML. But I can and it is nothing short of a miracle! God has certainly smiled on me and decided there is more for me to do on this earth. Oh it has not been an easy journey and I still struggle from the side effects of treatment, but it is a miracle I am even here. I will never be the same physically, or emotionally as I was before cancer. My life is a new normal if you can call anything about it normal. I do live each day as though I may not see tomorrow, for we never know...... I am blessed to have so many people in my life who love me. And I am blessed to have a sister who gave me the gift of a second chance at life. I just want to say to all my friends, family, supporters, and caregivers, thank you! Life is good!
