I was sitting at my desk, my mind wandering and racing. I needed to get out so I took a walk to Starbucks for an afternoon pick-me-up. When I returned to my office, I looked at my email and there was an email from my doctor – the results were in.
For the first time since 2008, I saw the words I’ve long waited to hear: “There is no more tumor, all is good!”
A deep sigh of relief and a weight off of my shoulders. This beast has tried and tried to bring me down, but I am far too resilient to allow that. With an amazing cast of doctors caring for me and my wonderfully supportive family and friends, I can finally say “I am tumor free” since my initial diagnosis in 2008.
This news is just the tip of the iceberg though. You see, I knew this day would come but I just did not know when. What I did know however, was that my passion and excitement for this cause was just getting started and today, I had the privilege of being a part of something great…
Stay tuned. Until then, enjoy a beer or your favorite cocktail tonight – it’s on me.
