Today is National Cancer Survivors Day and this is something we all need to rejoice in.


No matter where we are in the process and how far down the path we have traveled, today we celebrate the fact that we are survivors. I opened my eyes this morning and saw daylight, I opened my lungs and sucked in fresh air, today is another bonus day and I celebrate another day of being a survivor.

It is not just me or you, but our loved ones, family and friends, are all right there with us, they are all survivors of our cancer as well.

So take a minute, look around, smell the flowers, enjoy the sights, enjoy the love of family and friends, PLAN FOR MANY MORE TOMORROWS, and celebrate in the glory of another bonus day.

Thank you my friends, my fellow survivors, for all of your support and caring,
