Turned 40 today.....been 3 years since my surgery...felt like yesterday going through the biopsy prep on my 37th birthday asking myself who else at my age on their birthday is going through this.....
 
Grateful that everything has gone extremely well with my treatment...even though parts of my body behave at times like I am 80.... but I would take the side effects anyday to be here with my family and friends!!!
 
Thanks everyone here for your continous support, and I hope I provide some for the newly diagnosed as well.
 
Have a Great day, I am going to spend with my Family and Friends!!!!!
 
Drinks on me today!!!!!
 
LIVESTRONG!!!
