As September draws to a close, my family is happy to have celebrated another round of birthdays, including my own... I'd like to say I am 29 (again) but for the first time, I am not concerned about turning another year older. 37 came with great pleasure this year and I plan to take each year with the same enthusiasm (well, that is the PLAN anyway!)
Thank you to everyone who inquired about being in the calendar - all of the months are now spoken for but I have kept all of the contact details of those who are interested for next year's edition!
I am priviledged to be able to meet with the 11 other courageous women this week, along with our photographer Jen and the Look Good, Feel Better make-up and hair volunteers and really kick-off this project. The planning has taken some time but we want this to be a huge success!
On a personal note, I will begin 5 weeks of daily radiation treatments at Princess Margaret Hospital starting on Oct 5th (ending Nov 9th) so my time will be a bit tight over the coming weeks. I will still keep up with the blog and any developments so please keep posting! I look forward to the end of my personal fight with cancer and the next chapter of my life beginning. The last 7 months have been intense, to say the least. Some days good, some days not so good but all of it meaningful.
I'm glad to hear that this project has inspired so many of you and I take great comfort in knowing that my cancer journey will not be in vain. If I can help even one person get through their own journey, it will all have been worth it.
Be well everyone, be strong and show your face of courage.
Stay tuned for more updates....
