In January of 2009, as a 19 year old sophomore in college I was diagnosed with stage 3b metastatic melanoma.
I had a handful of surgeries and completed a year of interferon to treat this disease. I'm still cancer free! I celebrate my Cancerversary on February 26, my last day of treatment. Gifts are always welcome ;). Kidding. kinda
To be honest, I'm not quite sure how I want to go about this on my blog. It was and is still a big part of my life. BUT, as you can see, life goes on (thank goodness)!
What I do know is that I want to open the door to cancer survivors, caregivers and friends/loved ones. PLEASE feel free to contact me anytime about anything cancer related. Dealing with treatment. Coping with life after treatment. Anxiety. How you can help someone who has cancer. ANYTHING!
I was once told by a fellow patient that one of the blessings of ever having cancer is being able to support other survivors on their journey. I want my blog to be a place of support and camaraderie for anyone affected by cancer. [Oh, and to look at a million photos of my kid while you're here.;)]
