Today I’m An 11 Year Cancer Survivor…

11 years ago today I had my last ABVD cocktail injected into my veins. That last bit of toxic poison that killed all the Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cancer cells in my body. I can still “taste” the DTIC after all this time. I still remember the sickness that followed…

But today is not about the bad stuff, today is about rejoicing that I’m still here! Thankful that I am a survivor of cancer and not one of the far too many who don’t make it. I’m thankful I’ve seen both children learn to walk, learn to talk, go to school, finish kindergarten (and way beyond now). I’ve seen one become a teenager and the second just about to become a teenager (Lord help us). ๐Ÿ˜‰

As you know, I’ve been relentless here toward fundraising for the Relay For Life because too many cancer patients don’t make it to the status of “survivor”. To all who have helped through donations, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! I’ll now leave you with a nice video I found on YouTube as a tribute to all the survivors.

It’s not too late to donate by the way. We still have a couple weeks left and I’m still a little short of my online fundraising goals. Thanks if you can give!

    I am fortunate enough to be a 21-year bone cancer survivor this September! Your words, "Too many people don't make it to the 'survivor' status are so true and sad at the same time. I support Relay for Life and also TNT. Great post and video, Dale! Thank you!
