[Jenni is a young friend of mine. She doesn't have an MPN, but she has a message. It meant a great deal to me, as I hope it will to you. She has suffered terribly with stage 4 ovarian cancer...twice. She's also a pediatric oncology nurse at Children's Hospital.]
"Tonight is my last "Chemo Eve!" Sitting here thinking about this photo and how much Scott and I have overcome in the last seven months! We took this picture two days after my surgery...not knowing what the future would hold for us. Throughout this journey, we both have made the decision to praise God for our blessings, be thankful for our circumstances and choose joy each and every day...even if it was REALLY hard. We were always a team...whether we were laughing together or crying together. Thank you Scott for being my biggest cheerleader and staying strong for me no matter what life has thrown at us...Love this man oh so much!!!
I never thought I'd have to fight cancer again...but I'm so grateful for everything this second roller coaster ride has taught me along the way!!! I still have a fight ahead of me (a lifetime of Avastin infusions, blood work and scans)...but I love celebrating the milestones as they come...and having my last chemo treatment tomorrow is one of them! Cheers to being cancer free, quick hair growth, a big appetite, no more nausea and a crazy amount of energy coming my way SOON!
Thank you again for all the prayers! I really mean It when I say I couldn't have done this without each and every one of you praying, calling, texting, visiting and thinking of me."
