  • It's been a little over a year

    Since I was first dianosed. So far things couldn't be going greater. Latest CT scan, chest x-ray, and markers came back fine. I just celebrated my 26th birthday last week. It really meant a lot to me because this time last year I was getting ready for one of the hardest trials of my life. What a difference a year makes!!!

    I still have a little hair falling out every now and then, plus some bouts of indigestion/heartburn. But my hair has grown back and I just had the port taken out last week.

    Looking forward to the Relay For Life event this June.

        Tho' much is taken, much abides; and though we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are; one equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will; to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
