October 17th, I believe, will always be etched into my mind; it's the BC (before cancer) that I "divide" my life and the trajectory it took once the sledge hammer came down on our heads that fateful day. But we persevered beyond what any family should take on; and truthfully, we had no other choice. We put our faith in the Georgetown doctors (Aziza Shad and Joe Gootenberg); the medical staff, and the plethora of nurses that circled around the clock to provide the preeminent care we came to depend on 24/7/365!
It truly takes a "village."
Today, we want to THANK EVERYONE that has played a part in this crazy journey, even if it's a positive thought sent our way in the last 23 years. Everything is greatly appreciated beyond what my words can convey here, and promise me/us that you will hug your kids/grandkids/nieces and nephews a little tighter when together.
BSoleille! The bright side of positive reflection!
