I was at the hospital getting my weekly round of chemo when a palliative nurse came in to meet with me and my family. After a few minutes, I found her to be super depressing. I looked right at her and said , "your fired; I mean it I want you off my team". My family was horrified but I was very diplomatic and firm.
Step Right Up....you bet I am and I am blasting this cancer diagnosis. It's my new mantra and that means surrounding myself 24/7 with people and medical staff I like and admire.
Friends left me this chemo bag with a stuffed animal, the coloring book and they made me Kapow Pet Puppet from the Bring Out Your Inner Kapow page. I am supposed to keep it around to remind me how strong I am and that I am not alone.
I went straight to the back of the book and colored my Cancer Free flag. I am looking forward to landing in my old universe! - Joni T.
My favorite section of the book is where my family sent out the silly, love & inspiration and funny memory postcards for my good friends and other family members to draw and then send them back to me. They are a much needed break to get on the days I get chemo.
I am hanging on and taming that "Troubull" no matter what it takes. Then I am walking out of that rodeo forever! -Emily H.
My friend sent me this book and my favorite page is the “straight to the top”. I had my first chemo today which was really scary but I am getting that cancer free flag and making it to the top! -Lauren H.
It worked! I showed my doctor my cartoon and she just cracked up and said, "Okay, let's go through all this a little slower." -Katie M.
