Today is a special day for me and one I felt was so far away 10 months ago. Today is my mom's last day of treatment. YIPPEE!!!! I'm planning to make dinner for my family and after dinner about 20 - 25 close family & friends will be joining us for cake and champagne. The cake says.... Congratulations on kicking BUTT! My mother will LOVE that!

I am so grateful - I have a wonderful family, a sexy fiancee and many friends including everyone here. Thank you to everyone who has ever read or posted to my messages. I am so happy to have my mom happy & healthy come wedding dress shopping with me. It truly is a blessing.

    Congratulations Julie, this is a very very special day. My dad has 3 more treatments to go, hopefully forever and obviously I am also getting very excited.

    Fab news and congratulations to both you and your mum on your fortitude in geting through this difficult time.
    Do be aware however that your mum may have some mixed feelings about this coming to an end as have been illustrated by some of the others here on this site. I too am just abot to finish my six months of post op chemo almost a year since diagnosis. I am so looking forward to finishing it and getting on with my life but also have some trepidations about the fact that I am stopping anything active that prevents this cancer coming back. While in treatment I have a feeling that I am bening active in preventing it and when finished that will go and it will be down to luck- something that many people struggle with. Periods of doubt, worry and even depression I think are quite common during this next phase so jsut be aware that your mum still has challenges to face including adjusting to not having treatment.

    Don't want to rain on you parade though as am so pleased fo you for hitting this milestone. Enjoy your party and we will drink a toast to you both here in the UK.
    well done!
