- I have some amazing nurses in my friends and family who are looking out for me, comforting me, educating me
- I have the most amazing, wonderful family, both immediate and extended
- My friends always have let me know I am loved, but most particularly in the last few weeks
- There are people who have it worse than me. I was reminded of this recently when I learned of someone who was diagnosed with a cancer far worse than mine
- I work for a company that actually has compassion (imagine that)
- I have found some of the best doctors, and am blessed enough that they are willing to treat me
- My husband loves me, is an amazing support system, and has the best frikking insurance! ;-)
- My son is the happiest, silliest, craziest boy with the best smile and hugs
- I was born in 1977 and diagnosed in 2011, meaning the treatment for me is practically routine in the medical community by now
- I have the most inspirational, supportive survivors whose own fight will lead me through this
- I live in America where medical advances are top notch
- My faith is still with me, I know I do not walk this path alone
- and one final blessing: I am able to remember I am blessed, even now!
