High Five's All Around

I wish I could give you a high-five right now!  I truly do!  This month marks five years from the most horrific day of my life! It is even worse than the day I was in an auto accident (it wasn't my fault), the day my sister died, the day my father-in-law died or the day my mom died. It was August 27, 2009! It was the day Dr. Kraemer told me I had cancer. He said a bunch of other stuff but it sounded like this, "You have Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, blah, blah, blah, keep you alive until there is a cure, blah, blah, blah. There is radiation, blah, blah, blah, and chemotherapy, blah, blah, blah."  I heard "You are going to die."

That's what made it the worst day in my life!

But I made it to FIVE YEARS!!! 

Why is that significant? Because I the statists say that 31% of the people with NHL don't see five years. And I'm one of them who DOES!!! Raise the roof!! I made it!! 

So if you see me, how about a High-Five!
