Relay For Life




What an emotional event! I took the first lap with Steve and the boys and cried the whole way. It was great to be part of the Survivor group. We didn't stay that long, it was rainning, but hand's up to all those over there that had their tents set-up and ready for the night. I did manage to find my luminaria that Steve's aunt got for me. We didn't stay until they were lit, I bet it's beautiful to see all those little lights in honor or memory of someone. If it wasn't for the rain, I would have stuck around to see them, but I doubt they were able to light them, so we headed back home.

Well, on his way to bed, Jerome came to me, gave me a big hug, started crying and before I could say anything, he told me "Mommy, I'm so happy it's all over!". What a sweet child, what else could I do but to hug him back just as tight, hold him and pour out some more tears of joy with him. Now, Jerome is the one that had the hardest time dealing with my cancer, the numerous doctors appointments and all the side effects. Jerome is also the one who cannot and has NEVER voiced his emotions that way before. It melted my heart.

What a wonderful thing to do! I found out about Relay for Life via a friend who works for them and I am doing one on 12th Sept 2009 as a survivor two days after I finish my chemo! My t-shirt arrived the other day! I can't wait.

And you are indeed a survivor!! The shirt looks wonderful on you and your boys are adorable. Blessings to you and your family.

Thanks everyone :)

Sara, you will find it amazing to be able to take that walk at the end of treatment. Good luck with chemo. Hopefully when it's all done, you too will be able to say "wasn't as bad as I was expecting"
