Radiation is done!

The radiation room
On the table for my last radiation treatment!


Ringing the bell!

I am not sure the significance of ringing the bell with finishing cancer treatment, but it feels really good!

My house was decorated when I came home from my last treatment.  Thanks Mary Jo!

  1. Dear Nancy,
    You are one of my heroes. I've been keeping track of you through this blog and just want to say thank you. I should have contacted you before. Your letter last November motivated me to get my BRCA test in January and I was told in February that I tested negative. Fortunate for me and my children. Unfortunately that still doesn't tell us anything about my sisters. I was pretty sure, until my doctor told me, that I was going to have a positive test, and I kept thinking that you would be my example of how to handle the cancer should it develop. I just want to say that you have been courageous and a great example to me. I love you and pray that this trial and challenge is almost done for you. I loved the post you did awhile back about your mom. I miss her, I have so many great memories of her, your dad and you. Take care and remember if you ever need a summer vacation in Idaho and Yellowstone, my home is always here for you.
    Love, Shelley Baum
    P.S. I love your short hair; much better for hot flashes than long hair.

  6. I bet you rang the bell proudly! =D I’ve read from your latest post that your condition has gone a lot better and that everything is back to normal. Radiation therapy is effective and may be tough, but you are tougher. So happy for you!
