Celebrating the New Year once just wasn’t enough! Earlier this month we turned to Facebook to ask Boobers! - - “As a breast cancer survivor, what does beginning a New Year mean to you?” We received so many responses, we had to post a second blog to fit them all in. Enjoy!
“Another year is success in beating the statistics of my cancer! I hope to keep beating those odds. Another year to watch my littlest grow into the sweetest, smartest little man he is and be on the receiving end of the love he has to give. Another year to watch my older children grow into the adults they are becoming. Maybe seeing a future daughter-in-law be added to our family. Another year to be with the man who stole my heart and who I couldn’t see life without. Every day above ground is a good day for me. Living life to the fullest is the only way!”
“A New Year for me is both exciting and scary at the same time. I am excited I am alive and cherish every day to love my family, friends, and life. But it is also scary due to newly-diagnosed stage 4 breast cancer. The uncertain and unknown can be overwhelming at times. That is when I hold my family and faith closer. As Mark Nepo said: “To be broken does not mean all things are broken.”
