Relay for Life

I just returned from a 24 Hour Relay for Life. It was my second time. Last year I was just 3 months post-op from my lobectomy, and quite anxious about my future. I had the tremendous honor of speaking to the group about living with cancer. People were surprised to hear of my three cancer diagnoses. I was glad for the opportunity to show that you can live on and live well. I was interviewed for the local paper, and was amazed the reporter was writing down every word I said concerning how I face the disease. Last year I was sobbing through the candlelighting. This year I was so excited and happy to be there. My 3 year old niece asked whose birthday it was when she saw the candles.

I told her it was everyone's.
