Last year, on this day, I came in to work having no idea what was in store for me. Around lunch time, the doctor who did my biopsy called me on my cell phone to tell me I had cancer. He said I should be worried because of how quickly my tumor had grown. I was floored. I remember staying at work the rest of the day in a daze and then coming home on the bus, feeling so clausterphobic. I thought for sure that I would die very soon.
I think I found ACS that very evening, but I didn't start to post for a few weeks. I want to thank all of you who had such an impact on my life during this past year. It is not an exaggeration to say that you and this site have been a life-saver.
For all of our new sisters: it's a rough road, but one that you will travel on with the help of family, friends, and your sisters here. I wish you all the best.
All my love,
