Port and Walking

Well, today is THE day! It's two significant events in our lives.

The chemo PowerPort comes out in 2 hours. Then this evening, Relay for Life. Where I will proudly (and probably bawling) walk the Survivor lap. It will be a joy to watch Vic walk the Caretaker lap and he should lead the pack since he was the best one ever!

It's not too late to make a donation. If you haven't already donated, won't you help me reach my financial goal by donating $10 . . . just $10. Come on, you can do it! Just click on this link and it will take you to my home page to donate. Plus you get to see a pic of Baby Posh Spice. Thank you so much for your help!!!!

I will update later on how it actually was to have the port removed without Versed drugs. Got to go charge up my Ipod so I don't hear anything!

Much love and hugs to you all!

  3. Congratulations, survivor! You are indeed an inspiration. I walked the Relay for Life a couple of weeks ago but couldn't bring myself to walk as a survivor yet since I still have a long way to go. It was a moving experience to watch the survivors. Enjoy your walk. You deserve it!!

  4. I made another donation to bring you up to your goal hopefully.
    I am in awe of your strength.
    Love you Renee
