In the past 12 years, I worked, quit working, saw DD graduated from college, helped her when she moved away, cried when she got married, and celebrated when she gave me grandchildren, DH even retired. Despite cancer I have had some grand moments in life. I guess what I want the newbies to take away from my experience is this -- there is life after cancer and it can be full, rich and rewarding. Hang in there, ladies. You will get through this, too. We are a special class of warrior women! We are survivors!
Thanks for sharing my life. Lauri (dxed 04/11/1996)
