Hi everyone -
Liz in Dallas here. For those new-ish to this board, I was 46 when diagnosed with UPSC 1A in October of 2011. 2 surgeries, 6 chemo treatments, 25 radiation treatments (external). Last chemo was June 5 2012.
Here I am closing in on my 2-year 'cancerversary'. Things are going well - I've been back at work full-time for nearly a year, and am gobsmacked with how good I feel (and with how much I adore having short hair).
Catching up on posts I am heartbroken that we've lost some sisters. This board, and the courage of everyone who posts, helped get me through treatment. I really don't know how I would have coped without this oasis, where no matter how bad the day was there was always someone who'd been through it too and was able to offer the shoulder, the laughter, and the encouragement to keep on keeping on.
For those newly-diagnosed, know that there *are* things to look forward to, including:
Some of the women on this board have been fighting the fight for years. Your grace, courage, and willingness to share are awe-inspiring.
Thank you to all of you, couldn't have done it without you.
Liz in Dallas
