During six months of chemotherapy, I kept working. I would have my chemotherapy on Friday afternoon, go home and sleep to ward off the nausea, and be back to work on Monday morning. I still remember very clearly each treatment, each x-ray, each time I had to have blood tests. But now I remember how it changed my life, how it made me more appreciative of the people and events in my life. I would have never thought that 22 years ago that I would be sharing my story, helping other cancer patients, and be a healthy, happy, wife and mother.
