May I give you hope

Recommended Posts

10 years ago I had the most timely dose of pneumonia, because of this small cell lung cancer was discovered on the first xray and the tests began. I won't bore you with those details -- you all are familar with them!

The night before Thanksgiving I was sent home with appointments set for the next week and a boat load of very strong drugs to ease the pain.

So began my journey through the haze and exhaustion, but a PET scan 6 months later was NED, and now it's 10 years later and lung cancer seems so long ago. Not so long as to be forgotten but way back in my memories.

My wish is for every one of us to have hope and maybe this will be your inspiration.

Geri, congratulations on 10! You know you are one of my favorite inspirational survivors. Hope you don't mind me quoting from your signature. It's one of my favorites:

I'm still on the green side of the sod but now as the bionic woman and my future is still as long as it would have been before lc..........expiration date unknown (or long as I remember to change my batteries) !

Hope life is treating you well.

I've known you for almost 8 of those 10 years from here my friend. CONGRATULATIONS and much HOPE this post will bring to so many.

I think about you often, and hope you are doing ok with all that's happening with you...I think alot to your visit here to Texas and then when I went to Boston for that first walk- dinner with your lovely family-....what a catalyst that event was for LCSC and LUNGevity!

Shoot me an update on you soon, ok? I look forward to you being at Hope Summit in May. I miss you.

(((hugs)))
