Woman, wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend... Just when I thought life could not get any better I heard a knock on my door, it was Cancer.
It changed everything but not for the worse. I choose Life and Hope .
BACK OFF CANCER is what I say!

The beginning of this journey...shaving my head

Friday March 30th, 2007 - The start of CHEMO

I was moved from the Woman's Pavilion to the Oncology Pavilion ... that was a bit scary!
Here I arrive... full head of black hair... a few extra pounds on my round body to a place that at first I really felt I didn't belong ... and I think the patients and nurses there didn't either!

There is such a stigma with Cancer... that I hope I can help brake! It is not a disease of the old, bold and skinny... I was the living proof of it!

At 10 pm that night they started chemo. RCHOP is the name of my treatment. I fell asleep with my husband by my side and when I woke up, I felt this thousands of mini boxing fighters inside my body... punching the tumor... This is the visual that I have !!!!
