I've been part of an incredible journey for the last 7-8 months with my friend, Alice. On Tuesday of this week she completed a very trying twelve week stretch of this journey called, Breast Cancer Survival.
We've sat there on Tuesdays past and heard others ring the bell signalling the end of their chemo-therapy treatment. I know for Alice, the day she would ring that bell seemed a long way off some weeks.
I have observed the ultimate in grace under pressure, pro-activeness and smiling/laughing through adversity in my friend. She has kept a journal of this fight for her life and has educated herself to the hilt. And, she laughs. She has found humor in the horrible.
Alice, I'm so honored that I was there this week when you finally got to ring that bell! I know the road ahead of you is still a long one, but you have shown that you are up to the challenges that the rest of your journey has in store for you. You are an inspiration to so many.
Especially to me.
Thanks for letting me share your story with my blogging friends.
Good times are ahead, Partner!
