Monday. August 1, 2011. Just another day for some. No biggie.
For me, it was the day I learned I had cancer. I would be lying if I said “no biggie” here.
It was a big day. A day that rocked my world, one that shook me to the core.
But here I am a year later. And according to the latest test results, there’s no sign of the cancer. Biggie.
I’ve watched others who have received a cancer diagnosis after mine and have lost their battle. One was a grandfather who lived a life of service to others. Another died a few days before his 16th birthday.
That day was filled with so many unknowns. I didn’t know how blessed I was. I didn’t know we caught it early enough so I wouldn’t need chemo or radiation. I didn’t know just how awesome my friends and family are. I didn’t know that cancer would show me how to be grateful for the other things in my life.
I didn’t know I would eventually be able to tell others that it was just another day. No biggie.Tweet
