It has officially been a year. Hard to believe that just 365 days ago I was so sick I could hardly move. That I spent many nights without sleep drenched in sweat, and spent many days alseep in the chair with no energy.

June 19, 2008 - Went to the doctor and they discovered the enlarge nodes in stomach
June 21, 2008 - Realized I would be going to cancer doctor
June 22, 2008 - Diagnosed with Hodgekin's Lymphoma Stage 3B
July 2, 2008 - In the hospitol having port put in
July 3, 2008 - My first Chemotherapy treatment

My how things change in a year. There were times I thought I would never make it. There were times when I was in so much pain all I could do was cry. There were times I wanted to do nothing but crawl into bed and never emerge again.

But I had you all to pull me through. The cards, the gifts, the food and well wishes, the thoughts, the prayers, all of it helped me to look forward to a time when I could say I was cancer free. On my darkest of days I would look in the mail and something would be there to bring me back up. To tell me there was someone out there that cared enough to write and wish me the best. I can't thank you all enough.

In 7 months I can celebrate being cancer free for a year. For now I will just celebrate the fact I wake up in the morning and can make it through an entire day without feeling sick and without pain.

Okay guys, remember I mentioned the relay for life a while back? Well I officially signed up and will be participating. But that is only the first step. Now I need teammates or donations!

Here is my personal page for team members and donations. The relay is May 1-2 and anyone who wants to come down/up here and join me is more then welcome to! You can sleep at my house if you want to make it a few days or something. But the relay runs all night of May the 1st. At least one member of our team needs to be on the track at all times.

For more information on how to sign up or to donate go here:

This is the first time I have ever done anything like this...but being a survivor I understand its importance now. I would never have been able to survive without the American Cancer society and its help and the cancer clinic and their knowledge about how to fight the Lymphoma.
