|(This took courage to post this picture-so feel privledged to view it:) So here I am during treatment. I lost my hair after high power (or is that poison) chemo called Melphan. This killed all the cancerous bone marrow in my body before two stem cell transplants.|
2019-It has been 11 years since diagnosis. I am healthy and strong and have not been on any kind of treatment for several years. I got my life back!! At 51 I begin teaching Jr. High. Something I really thought I would never get a chance to do. I taught for 3 years than transferred to a local high school where I teach Child Development, Adult Roles & Financial Literacy, and Early Childhood Education where my students run a preschool. It's my dream job!!
I am also a grandmother with 9 grandbabies!!! Something else I thought I would never get to experience. Life is good. I know I am blessed and one of the lucky few to have gone so long without treatment. I continue to do labs every 3 months, and scans once a year.
Life is Good!!
