Survivor Celebration

Recommended Posts

Saturday, 4/22 most all of our local Lung Cancer Support group showed up for a Survivor Lunch. There were 17 of us at 2 huge tables. There were also many other survivors there of other types of cancer. It was great. One speaker was a chaplain who "thanked us" for all he learned from us in our fight against this beast. Another was a women who spoke of her walk with her husband who has been going through treatment for colon cancer. The 3rd speaker was a local KSTP channel 5 news reporter who last year went through Ovarian Cancer treatment, Kristi Piehl.

She said first all should plan a "Kickin Cancer Party" and invite all our friends to get them on board.

She also said she keeps in mind now the 3's rule. Make a list of all you would want to do if you only had 3 years, all you would want to do if you had 3 months, 3 weeks. She felt people would be the most important task on each list, to say I love you and things like that.

The box lunch was good too. Most important was to have all ( but Connie and Wendy) my survivor friends there to hug , to laugh with, to smile with for all we have accomplished.
