We usually reserve this time of year for reflection. I know not why exactly. Perhaps because families come together and families together elicit memories. These memories can vary from family to family. My family has many wonderful memories: our children growing up, new grandchildren, athletic events, Christmas customs and many more. One memory that has taken a priority in my family -- cancer. Christmas 2007 I spent in bed recovering from sarcoma surgery. Christmas 2015 will be a celebration of CANCER FREE, the two most wonderful words we cancer folks like to hear.
Remember: When you want to go fast, go alone. When you want to go far, go together (African Proverb). We cancer folks are a family, so from my family to yours, A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and a VERY HEALTHY & HAPPY NEW YEAR.
