Four Years Ago

| May 25, 2009

May 25, 2005 was the Friday before Memorial Day.  It was a day when I sat in our team doctor’s office after a bunch of tests at the hospital, and he was telling me that I was very sick…  my diagnosis was ovarian cancer. Four years later, I am still here.  Through the surgery, the chemo […]
