Day 9: For being cancer-free
Almost 17 years ago, I was diagnosed with acute myelomonocytic leukemia.
After two courses of intense chemotherapy and a grueling bone marrow transplant filled with complications, I earned the status “cancer-free.” Every day I have an increasing appreciation for being where I am today, 16 years cancer-free. I will never be free of the effects of cancer and cancer treatment. However, I have enjoyed 16 amazing years that I wouldn’t have otherwise experienced, which included:
marrying my best friend,
and the birth of our three miracle babies.
