The hard part is over!!!

Well it has been a crazy eight months but I feel like I've gotten over the hump. After 2 surgeries, chemo, radiation and now onto the tamoxifen, I finally feel like a weight is off my shoulders. I know the doctor said not to use the word "cured" but at least I can say my treatment is complete!
I'd just like to tell everyone out there in this fight, to hang in there. I firmly believe that attitude has been everything through this journey and it has given me a new appreciation for life. And there are just no words about how incredibly supportive my family has been...especially my husband. I can only hope that others out there are lucky enough to have a similar support system! I pray to God every day to thank him for my blessings.
To those of you just starting this process, BEST OF LUCK TO YOU!!! Even though I don't know you all, I will continue to include you in prayers.
