Current mood: Full of Hope

WOW! I can't believe I haven't blogged since February. A lot has happened in my life since then.

I went to London and Paris. I had an amazing time! Of course traveling was one of things I wanted to do post cancer. I figure I'm not getting any younger and you just never now what the future holds.

I found out my little brother Dean and his wife Jenn are expecting a baby girl (Kiersten Michelle) on or around November 1. I'm going to be Auntie Jill. I am so excited, words cannot express how I feel. I'm already shopping and spoiling her and she isn't even here yet.

I had a sweet surprise in the mail the other day from my "Chemo Buddy" Holly. She sent me a Warrior t-shirt along with a scarf. Ford is the sponsor of the program. She also sent the kindest note along with it. She said if anyone deserved to wear this shirt, it was me. In her eyes I am a warrior. Awww Holly, thanks so much.

I can't believe it but this Thursday, July 29th is going to be my 2 year anniversary since the end of my treatment. I had my very last Herceptin transfusion that day. Looking back it seems like it was forever ago but in a way it seems like it was just yesterday.

The other day I was watching the Yankees game and they interviewed a young player who is just coming up. His name is Colin Curtis. I was so taken a back when the interviewer congratulated him on his 10 year cancerversary. I looked at him and thought, wow he must have been young when he got it. I did some research and found out he was 15 when he was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Talk about being way to young.

It sure is great to see another young cancer survivor chase their dream and not let something like cancer get in their way.

That's what life is all about, cherishing what you have because you just never know what tomorrow may bring.
