Monday, April 13th, 2015 marked my second last visit to my oncologist. Having had colon cancer in 2010, had surgery and six months of chemotherapy, as of December of 2015, I will finally be considered cancer-free (the five year mark). There are 6 girls in my family and since 2008, cancer has claimed three of my beautiful sisters: Carolyn , Darlene & my "baby" sister Paula, who was only 44. There is only one older sister who has not had cancer at all and my younger sibling, who had breast cancer and has undergone a double mastectomy, and I are grateful survivors.
At my checkup, my oncologist expressed how pleased she was with my progress and I simply had to tell her that I have no time for cancer, I'm too busy making beautiful soaps, which made her smile. :)
