I’ve been struggling for a while to write a really poignant 2018 New Year Post. The last time I had a New Years after going through cancer treatment I was filled with so much hope! It was a new year, a new me and I was really feeling it.
This time around I’m much more sober about things. I feel grateful and definitely happy. But I have wised up to the realities of my situation. Am I scared? Yes of course, but only in moments. 90% of the time I’d say I’ve already forgotten about what just happened and it’s probably because I don’t have a reminder of my treatment staring at me in the mirror.
And then last night happened.
I read this amazing article last night where scientists have cured triple negative breast cancer in mice. They’ve actually CURED it. Sometimes you don’t know what you’re looking for until you’ve found it, and I’ve finally found hope.
I’ve been scared that my cancer will come back again, and that this time it will spread. I’ve been so lucky and I don’t want my luck to run out.
A cure, even a couple years away, even five years away, is still a cure.
Happy New Year everyone, may 2018 be a year of love, fortune, happiness and hope! xoxoxo
