Wow! Fabulous News! Over the weekend, my husband, two daughters (Ages 3 and 5), and I walked in the Relay for Life. It was really a humbling experience to meet so many wonderful survivors with such beautiful attitudes! Best of luck in your marathon, I would love love love to start running marathons again! My 3rd daughter will be born in September so my mind is thinking possibly the California International Marathon (CIM) in December 2013 might be the first race after a 7 year break. The last marathon I did was CIM in 2006 when I was 5 months pregnant with my first! So enjoy the marathon and a fabulous trip to Ireland!

So glad you are doing well with your treatments. It is so scary to have an illness that keeps coming back. Good luck with future treatments.

emoticon for a clean PET result. Wishing you all the very best. My brother in law is fighting Hodgkins Lymphoma. It's soooo frustrating. He's on Adcetris (the new lymphoma chemo) and we are hoping for good results. We are also hoping his biopsy comes back with some happy results in the next few days but things haven't been good.

Keep up the good fight emoticon emoticon

Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

Hi SP Team,
On May 31st I got a clean PET scan, Wahoo!! This is my third time being in remission in the past 3 years of fighting Lymphoma. Like many of you, I've gone through some pretty gnarly treatments. And I'm not wasting another day. In celebration of Life I will be running a marathon in Ireland 2 week before my next scan. I'm sure you can appreciate how lucky I am to have training time in between scans. SP Community Guidelines say I cannot ask you for donations to my fundraising campaign. However, if you are interested in reading more on my cancer story or checking out my TNT page, feel to follow the links below.
