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

The beginning of this journey...shaving my head
Me, Francesca, on April 1st 2007, the day I shaved my head....

I was going to write this whole thing but once I put the pics together I realized I don't really need to write much... you can see from above!
Today marks One Trimester, 3 Months, 90 Days, 12 Weeks that I am off treatment... It seems a lifetime ago and also an instant ago. While unpacking some last boxes I found my "chemo socks" and emotions came running ... but also being able to bike 20 Km and swim 2 Km in one day makes me feel how far I have come.
I purposely have not written about cancer and my remission. Me and you, we all needed a break but as my 3 month PET scan comes upon us I must admit how nervous and AFRAID I am. I don't want it to EVER come back.
Much love to all
