I can remember when I graduated from high school in 1967 and thought the year 2000 was a million years away. Then when I was diagnosed with Breast ca in 1989 and Lymphoma in 1998 both times I thought in the back of my mind that I would never see the year 2000 and here it is 2003. Wow! I just am so happy and blessed. But I cant help but reflect on my friends and my brother whom I lost to this insidious disease. So I pray for all the survivors, families of survivors, and families who have been touched by cancer. I pray with all my heart that there is a cure in 2003 so that all of us can share in its rewards and all our generations to come will never ever have to deal with this life's tragic disease. God bless all. Wishing everyone the very best new year ever. Wow, 2003. Amazing!!

Congratulations! We are so blessed! I am going on five years and thought I would never see it, either! Praise and Thanks to God!

I know exactly how you feel. On New Years eve, just after midnight, I sat alone in the great room of my home and cried. I don't know who I was crying for or what I was crying about. I too, thought how amazing it is that I am still here with my family and as I looked back on the sugeries and the chemotherapy...it was not that bad. This is my 3rd year after dx and I am truly blessed to have been given this time. I also lost a beloved brother to a brain cancer in 2001 right after the New Year came in. We don't know what is ahead for us but we do know what is behind us and through all the treatment and the fear and the anxiety....We ushered in a New Year and new hope for all of us. WOW is right!!
