Hello all. "Tuffenuff" just posted about ring the bell. Made me think it would be fun to see where we all rang or will ring our bell.
I rang my bell in Torrance CA on June 22, 2012

What about you?

Hi Billie,

I did not get to ring a bell at radiation, but I did ring one at home and I ring it three times for everyone I hear about that completes radiation treatments. Ringing the bell makes our cat come to the door and the neighbors look.

March 23, 2011 - Albany, OR

Best,

Matt

Cindy rang every bell.

However, I did finish my tx in downtown Boise, Idaho...at the MSTI Clinic (Mountain State Tumor Institute) ....they were a great bunch..

I didn't hear of it until I was done too. Did my Irish Jig dance qualify as a bell? Finished on April 3, 2012

But they did have a 'graduation' of sorts with a diploma. I decided to add something to it and knowing they did a diploma, had a mortar board on hand complete with tassel and a pair of Mickey Mouse ears. Everyone at St. Peter's Cancer Center in Albany heard about it! I graduated July 5th, 2012.

Now if I could just start generating just a little saliva....

Congratulations to my fellow bell ringers and graduates, may we all soon post our NED!
