2 Years!

Sunday, February 22 will be 2 years since my last radiation treatment for breast cancer. It seems longer that. I consider it my survivorship day. I don’t talk or dwell on the fact that I had breast cancer often. I prefer to put it in the past and move on with my life. But I will celebrate this day. Each week, month and visit to Seattle Cancer Care Alliance that goes by with a positive result puts me further away from the disease.

For anyone reading this going through cancer treatment, I’m proof that is gets better. You can get through it and lead a better life. I’m much more aware that life is short and can be taken from you at any time. In the past 2 years I have done things, I never would have before, that were out of my comfort zone. I’m not afraid of doing something that may be hard or scary, because I already did the hardest thing in my life, beat cancer.

Life is a gift and should be a bit of an adventure. Cancer gave me the courage to put me first. Yes, I have a job and family to consider, but I’m going to run fast and take chances.

    You are awesome, Bethany! I think we could all learn a lot from your attitude and experience. Can’t wait to see you fly in 2015! Cheers to many more years of good health, my friend.
