The outpouring of support my family and I have received since letting people know about my leukemia diagnosis has left me speechless.
It is one thing to be diagnosed with cancer. It is quite another to know that thousands of women and men have me in their thoughts as I embark on my personal journey to cancer survivorship.
Having completed a few marathons, I can say I know a bit about endurance, and fighting through pain. I expected to draw open that experience during my treatment. Now, I will also draw upon the words so many of you shared: words of hope, words of inspiration, and words of encouragement.
I love Joan’s image of my cancer cells being smothered by my good karma. And as Liz, Carol, and Kathy each reminded me: I have the love and support of an entire Army of Women behind me and leukemia doesn’t stand a chance against this Army!
I’m off to do what Casey said its a** and teach us more than you already have by doing so.
I will update you soon.
