Today I had my last radiation treatment!! When I was finished I got to ring the bell! The whole place broke out in cheers and clapping! It felt awesome! These are the people who have helped save my life! This is the staff at the radiation center. They have been my cheerleaders and encouragers for the past six weeks. They have educated me, listened to me, comforted me, supported me, hugged me, and blessed me with their daily kindness and caring. Please join me in thanking God for their training and expertise, for their passion to help save lives, and for their compassion demonstrated to each person who comes through the radiation center.
I've had mixed feelings this week knowing that I would be finishing radiation and chemotherapy. These are the people who I have seen on a daily basis. These are the people who were there in the beginning as I had just begun to process the diagnosis of cancer. These are the people who told me that I could beat this. These are the people who believed in me. What will I do without them? What a gift they have been to me.
The cool thing is that I know as I take the next step in this journey God will continue to provide exactly the people, doctors, and caregivers that I need. He is good like that.
So, THANK YOU to my sweet friends at the radiation center, and may God continue to use you all as you care for so many who are fighting for their lives. You are awesome!
