I climbed a mountain

On Sunday I climbed Mount Monadnock in NH. I know for some this would not be such a feat, but for me it was huge. I had no idea how hard it was going to be. But I did it with one of my brothers and my 2 sons, It was amazing. When I was a kid gym was not my favorite subject. It took over 5 hours and it was very hot and humid.

I know that so many of you are still struggling with treatments, I sometimes hesitate to post that I am doing well. But then I remember that when I was diagnosed in 3/03 with stage 3 rectal cancer I wanted to hear survivor stories. I am holding on to the hope that in 10 mos. I will be 5 years out and considered cured. My onc. surgeon uses the surgery date.

I also want to welcome the way too many newbies on this board. I will try to post more often.

Whew! If I were to climb a mountain, well, a helicopter from the coroner's office could pluck me off...(I am VERY afraid of heights...lol!)

Congrats for the success! And for the long term survival!!!

Hugs, kathi

Hi Maureen,
That is awsome. I am so excited for you that you are nearing that magical 5 year mark. I can't wait for that day to arrive for me either. I am nearing the 3 year mark which I understand is a huge milestone. I'm ready! You are making me more inspired to get out and climb a couple of mountains myself that I have been wanting to do for a while now. There are 2 in my area that I've been thinking about but haven't done yet. If I get around to them this summer I will post it.
I love climbing. It is amazing what we "survivors" can do!
Thanks for sharing,
Susan H.
