Birthday celebration

This forum is a wonderful place.  A place of information, advice, sorrow and joy. 

If anyone is interested in sharing their birthdate with me, I will try my best to post a celebration thread. 

When I was diagnosed, and all seemed dark, I wondered if I would reach my next birthday; so I decided to celebrate my birthday every month. I call it my Birthday Day. And five years later, I still celebrate every month.

Life is a celebration, but when the fight is on - no matter what the fight is - celebration seems hard to come by; so, share with me your special date, and we will help you celebrate when your day arrives.

I am all for celebrating for any reason and no reason at all.  But hey, Tru, if you have had a birthday every month for the past five years, doesn't that make you about 145 years old now? Wink

Mine's March 21 so in two days. I'd love a celebration post! I see my onc that day and I'm hoping my CEA has squeeked down a little more. If it's 5 or under I'll be delighted. Last time it was 5.4 so it was close but actually being at 5 or less would be a great way to celebrate my birthday!

I have to laugh whenever I hear someone complain about getting older. Personally I LOVE getting older! I hope you have a very Happy Birthday!!!

Our youngest son, Griffin, will be 19 on March 22.

Thanks you guys! I just coloured my hair because I had about 2 inches of gray and hadn't been able to colour it the whole time on chemo until the sores went away so that makes me feel better, too.

Tru, your idea is a good one! I like the idea of celebrating life every month.   Thank you for all you do to help and encourage us on this forum!

My birthday is December 13, so it's a ways to go for the actual birthday.

You are all so sweet! Thank you! I told my husband I'm turning 50. Again. I can't believe how old I am now. I used to think of this as ancient. I don't feel any older.

Might as well kick in, Happy Birthday Jan!! Hope it finds you in the best of spirits. As for a regular thing I think it's a great idea, the harder times are when a reason to celebrate and get a little silly, are when it matters most. When things are easy I can find tons of reasons to get happy. I don't celebrate my birthday much, because it's my mama's big day as well, May 23rd, and we always have dinner out with the family........................................................................Dave
