Achieving AWESOME!

In the last couple of weeks I have been a part of many new beginnings: our friends gave birth to a baby boy in VT, college friends got married, another couple received the news they were expecting, and I started a new position at Dana-Farber in the Pediatric Oncology department.  With any new beginning, hopefulness and optimism are natural, but what happens when things don’t go according to plan and something unexpected happens?

Being diagnosed with AML at age 12 was definitely not part of my parents’ plan.  Penn Staters did not expect the whirlwind of events that occurred last week.   These unexpected “bumps” can be small or large, but in any case, we have to find a way to carry on.

Since the holidays are approaching and I know many people who plan festivities in excess (myself included), I could not think of a more perfect time to share this amazing message.

Although I am still learning how to embrace my inner 3 year old, I would like to thank my amazing husband and of course, Gus, for showing me the light.
