10 years since Diagnosis Stage 3c IBC her2+

Well ladies , just stopping on in to say as of yesterday I just got my 10 year mark since those ugly words I heard of you have cancer .
So much in 10 years have changed and so much has stayed the same and I’m so thankful to be hitting this 10 year milestone. My next milestone and mission now that I’ve seen my kids graduate high school, college , marriage and grandchildren is to reach retirement status with my partner and husband of 33 years ( 38 together ) . Yep , I can hardly believe it, now looking at retirement!
I hope my words give other’s encouragement that no one knows when it’s our time to leave this earth until the day it actually arrives .
You don’t have to be a person of faith but do yourself a favor and try as hard as it might be to always have hope .
