Q & A
My nephew, Chris, asked me a few questions and I thought I would share the answers.

1. What is the most enjoyable aspect of your fight?

Good question. It could be having a reason to go hat shopping or having an excuse to spend days watching movies. In all seriousness, the most enjoyable aspect is having an opportunity to spread awareness on this topic. There is a lot of information out there now (just look at how much I am able to link to my blog entries!), but sometimes watching someone or reading their journey with this disease makes it more real. I'm so glad that celebrities are coming forward and sharing their experiences as well. We can't hide from breast cancer, but if we face it head on we can win the battle.

2. What do you want to do when this is all done with (Which I think will be in about a year right?)?

The majority of this will be done in six months, with the hardest part done this December. I want to live life enjoying every moment. I want to take from this experience the lessons intended for me and move forward with a passionate embrace of life. I'm not sure exactly how I will define that yet. I'm sure it will involve a vacation and a lot of fun as well as continuing to spread awareness and supporting those who going through breast cancer treatment.

3. Will this experience change your teaching style?

I am certain this experience already has and will continue to change my approach to everything.

4. What movie/book/political ad/documentary/book or cd on tape/magazine/stone tablet/text book/romance novel/silent movie/papyrus/etc. will you be reading/viewing during your last treatment?

I haven't decided yet! I've thought about just bringing my journal for this last treatment. I'd really like to capture the moment and the journal might be my best bet. Although, the movies do really help pass the time (I was thinking about a classic laugh like Moonstruck). I'll have to let you know on Thursday.

Speaking of Thursday, have I mentioned that it is my last chemo treatment? I wasn't sure if I had mentioned that yet or not. You read that right. My LAST chemo treatment. Woohoo!

This is my story about being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 39. I thought I was out of the woods, but four years late it came back. This is my quest to be a two-time survivor.
