Since Jan 10 2012:
20 weeks chemo--CHECK
Lumpectomy---CHECK
30 Radiation treatments--CHECK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (At my center, you get to ring a bell when finished plus I got a ball cap and certificate)

I'm tired, well cooked, still in the process of losing a big toenail, and have some neuropathy in my feet. HOWEVER, my fingernails are never better, and I have some hair, and eyelashes and eyebrows. AND, I'm through with treatment!!!

Hopefully, every dang one of those nasty triple negative BC cells are GONE. Thanks so much for your support and help getting me through this.

Hugs,

Angie

I remember my last treatment very well - March 16, 2012! The bell's sound couldn't have sounded sweeter! I'm so glad for you - live it up! I'm TN too. It's known to respond to chemo better and rads are the frosting on the cake.

Congrats and hugs!

What are you going to do with your free time now?

Congratulations on reaching this milestone on the long journey of treatment! It must be a wonderful relief. I am on the same journey and in the radiation phase so I can empathize. Enjoy each day and may God bless you and your husband.

You have always displayed such a great attitude and grace through this awful experience and I couldn't be more happy for you.

You may have had cancer, but cancer never had you.

Bravo!

I have happy tears in my eyes reading how you are celebrating with me. I've never had a sister, but you kindred Pinks are the best! Some of you asked about celebrating. Well, we have big plans. : - ) My husband is on a chemo break before another scan the end of Sep. We are scheduled to leave Sep 9 for a River Cruise on the Rhine and Mosel Rivers returning Sep 25. Soooo excited! Yesterday was the last medical appointment either of us has for almost a whole month!
Thanks!
