Cool video of my memories from October-December 2018. I love how these are done in the photos on the phone.
As we're coming to the end of 2018, it makes me think back to what I've done or accomplished. Not much this year as far as my old terminology of "accomplishments" are. I guess you can say yes I did a lot like fighting cancer & hopefully finally beating it this time. 💪🏼
I started my 2nd round of chemo in February after recovering from my single mastectomy. While recovering from chemo in the summer, I thought I was moving onto reconstruction, however an MRI caught cancer in my lymph node which traveled from the original spot to the other side, classifying it as metastatic breast cancer. I had surgery at the end of August to remove the cancer & also fat grafting to prep for reconstruction, which was a tough recovery. Then I did 5 weeks of radiation every day starting in October. 💪🏼
I did get to go to Vegas to celebrate finishing chemo with my sisters. Went to Formula Drift Long Beach during chemo. Went to Formula Drift Seattle in July & went to Formula Drift Irwindale at my home track in October. And I got to go to NYC with my cousin a week ago. I guess I can't say I really didn't do anything in 2018. It just feels that way. It feels my life has been only about the cancer for the last 17 months. 🙈😂
For once in my adult life I'm enjoying the holiday, taking time to slow down, absorb this time of year, live more in the moment and to appreciate everything I have & the special people in my life. ❤️
Before this cancer I was a work horse, it was all about work & absorbing the stress and never enjoying the holidays or people in my life. Cancer has forced me to slow down & remember what's important in life. Cancer sucks so much but it has taught me many lessons for which I'm grateful for. 🙏🏻💗
