It was one year ago today I walked into the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit at MCV hospital in Richmond VA. I was walking into the ring where the prize was to live the life I was given. I was scared, unsure, and vulnerable to everything surrounding me. Yet through the pain came a joy and happiness I will always remember and can keep so very close to me. 100 days after the transplant I heard those beautiful words that will forever resound in my mind, "You have no evidence of any cancer." Such a short sentence that embodies so much strength and assurance. I am living my life and loving it in a way that only can be done because of the path that my life took over the last year. My advice to anyone about to go through this "bump in the road" is simple. Fight like you have never fought before, you never know who you will inspire along the way!
Thank you all for your love and prayers, we won this together!
