Smile Hip Hip Hooray! 10 years NED

Hip hip horaay!
10 years ago today
Had a life saving mastectomy
I didn't know how lucky I'd be

I didn't know I'd see life so different
Full of awe and gratitude
Loving the trees
Birds and flowers

Happy to have the gift of breath
Know how precious it is
Living life with faith
Staying away from dis ease and fear

No longer allowing limitations to swamp me
No longer being defined by disease
I live life and cheer
Hip hip
