Hi Taunya,

Happy Birthday to your son, I hope you both had a wonderful day. I know how you feel Taunya, my son was 10 when I was diagnosed and now he's 13.

Hooray To You Both ! ! !

All my best for tomorrow and every tomorrow after that.

Taunya -

Happy birthday to your son and happy living to you!

Here's to many more! Personally, I plan to live to be 95 and then die in bed... shot by a jealous husband.

Congratulations! I have celebrated my childrens' birthdays with such joy, surviving rectal cancer for the last 6 years. I can remember celebrating my youngest son's first birthday on the day of my first post-surgical chemotherapy treatment. He is now in 1st grade...and my daughter, who was 6 when I was diagnosed, got her varisty letter in Cross-country as a 7th grader this year! Every year that I am here is a year of security and warmth for the kids. I am so happy that I have been here with them. Congratulations on your accomplishment of celebrating your son's birthday. It is an event worth that celebration, and makes the pain of this disease, well, fighting this disease, worthwhile.
