I recently had my last check up at the Tom Baker Cancer Center. It marked my 5th year post-treatment. The results were perfect and I can now relax. I am done with this disease and I hope to never face it again.
I sometimes thought that this day would never come. Now that it has, it feels surreal. I look back and remember a lot of extremes but they seem dulled by time. I want to move on and have an amazing life from here on out, but sometimes it feels wrong to ignore what has happened.
I have many ideas for what to do next and I’m excited for that.
