10 Years Later

Posted on April 8, 2018

Pink Breast Cancer RibbonWell it’s been 10 years. 10 years is a long time and I’m so happy to say that 10 years later, I am still cancer free. It has been a whole decade since cancer came a-knocking on my door. I was diagnosed triple-positive for breast cancer back then. I fought it hard with surgery, chemo, and radiation.

You can read all my cancer blog posts here if you are interested in my journey. Maybe you are just starting your journey down the cancer road and if so, I hope you find my blog posts helpful. I know I read lots of different blogs from people facing breast cancer and found them not only useful but inspiring. Reading about others’ battles helps us know that we aren’t alone. Reading how others dealt with certain symptoms, how they responded to treatments, how they overcame or even didn’t overcome certain things is important to read about and understand.

Anyway I wanted to share a 10 year cancer free post and celebrate the milestone. I am thankful to God, family and friends through it all. I have been so blessed and just want to encourage anyone out there who might need a positive thought or read a bit of support from someone who has been there. Hang in there you are not alone. Reach out to others, rely on your faith, your family and don’t be afraid to ask for help.

I pray that you can find peace, comfort, and healing. It is sometimes through pain and sorrow that we can emerge to find a new brighter beginning. Stay positive and fight the best fight you can.

    Wow! Been a long time since I’ve been here. So glad to see you still here and posting. My poor blog has been sadly neglected. I came to get a link to your blog to share in a crochet group on Facebook. The ladies in this group make some amazing projects. I know they’ll appreciate your work too. CONGRATS on 10 yrs cancer FREE! You give hope to ALL!

    Wow, what a story! Amazing! I’m retired from teaching, after 28 years, and cancer has touched two people I know. One with late-stage3, early-stage 4 breast cancer. After a year of grueling,torturous chemo and surgery, she has been cancer-free for 4 years! And…my husband, with slow-growth leukemia. After one treatment of chemo and a blood marrow transplant, he has been cancer-free for 2 1/2 years. There are miracles every day in the fight against cancer. I now know 3, because of you!!!
