Had my last round of chemo on 12/18 and just wanted to thank all my pink sister for helping me through this incredibly hard time. Without your strength, love and support I don't know how I would of made it through. You are all amazing women and I am proud to call you my sisters! I know this week ahead will be hard but I am glad to have this behind me and looking forward to celebrating Christmas with my family and friends.
Next stop 35 rounds of radiation and I will be going back to work in mid January part time.
I wish you all a wonderful holiday and a very happy and healthy New Year!

Lots of hugs!
Christine

I'm so happy for you! My last chemo was so exciting for me - Jan. 11, 2012. A day I'll always remember - it stands out in my mind much more that the last day of radiation (March 16, 2012). I hope you enjoy your holidays!!

Hugs!

Congrats on being almost done with chemo! Knowing you are near the end must be giving you some new found energy. It did for me.

Good luck Christine with rads!  Be sure and use any creams that your rads oncologist gives you, be gentle with your skin, take it as easy as you can and don't use any deodorant unless it is aluminum free, like Tom of Maine's. 

There are a lot of tips on another post on here that might help you a lot too.

 

Post so we know how your first day goes for you.

 

Hugs, Angie
