Hi semi-colons!

I celebrated my three year anniversary of survival on Friday. I am alive and thankful.

I warn all the newbies to not be surprised that the anniversary becomes a huge milestone each year for you but may pass unnoticed by those around you. As for my hubby he would much prefer to forget that I was ever diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer and just focus on the fact that I am alive and well. But ask any survivor....that anniversary is big.

So I raise my carrot juice in a toast to all of us survivors who make it another year and live to tell!


peace, emily who looks forward to another year of survival

Congratulations, Emily! Your dedication and commitment to educating all of us on alternative choices in fighting this disease is commendable. As I sip my green tea, I salute you for your bravery!

Celebrate, celebrate!!! Even with carrot juice, or probably, ESPECIALLY with carrot juice. What great news, Em. Hope the move went smoothly. You are right about anniversaries and dates. While life swirls on around us, there is this little calendar in my head that I keep checking; I have my 3 month followups in October, then repeat colonoscopy in November. Here's hoping.
Hang in there and keep up the good work. Judy

Emily, you rock!!! You go girl! I love news like this, especially coming from a stage III, Bert's diagnosis as well. Here's raising my glass in toasting you for a job well done and can't wait to raise it again when you pass, and you WILL, the five year bench mark.

Hi Emily - Congratulations!!!!
I know what you mean about anniversaries. Yesterday was the first anniversary of my last day of chemo. I also celebrate the anniversary of my surgery. And the anniversary of my diagnosis is very poignant for me. You are right that it is a very personal thing. I like to seize any opportunity to celebrate - being alive.
All the best,
