Two Years!

Two years ago today, I was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma of the left breast.  It was definitely a day that changed my life....in so many ways!  I am so thankful to God for every single day.  It's interesting to me that I can sincerely call this experience a BLESSING!  Who'd a thunk it?

I will be forever grateful to my family and friends who rallied around us....my Parish family who prayed endlessly (and are still praying)....to my online friends who have shown support in ways that I NEVER would have imagined....to the doctors, nurses, technologists and researchers who made my treatment possible and who allowed me the opportunity to have the BEST TREATMENT available....and most importantly...to all those women who have gone before me...who fought the good fight with dignity....for those who won their battle..and those that didn't.

My life has been forever changed.  For the rest of my days on this earth, I will view everything from eyes with a "special" set of glasses.

What a beautiful post. As soon as I saw the title I knew you must be posting about this wonderful anniversary. "Wonderful" being that you're a survivor of something so terrifying. Hugs to you my friend.
