Final treatment celebration

Thursday, August 30, 2012

My Mom had her last radiation treatment yesterday. She said when she came out into the lobby the staff was all lined up and they read what she described as a "happy poem" to her. There was a big bell hanging on the wall, she was told to ring it three times, then they all threw confetti on her ! She said confetti was still falling out of her hair this morning when she got up !
She sounded so happy on the phone, laughing and I could tell smiling widely, as she told me. I think it's fantastic that they made such a fuss.

    What a happy blog, congrats to your mom for getting through her treatments and to have those behind her as she can now move forward in her life. Having gone through cancer myself I know the toll the whole process can take on the patient and the family, there is something very special about the nurses, doctors and staff that work in the cancer wards and treatment centers, it is wonderful how special they make each patient feel. I am smiling and celebrating with, and for, your mom and you!

    Thrilled for your Mom. My Mom had the same thing when she finished radiations tx for breast cancer in August last year. Brought tears to her eyes. . . and mine!

    Hooray for your Mom! That's a wonderful thing to celebrate. Having a couple of girlfriends to complete therapy was a wonderful milestone that they shared with family, friends, and facebook.

    That's wonderful that they would do that. Your mom achieved a huge milestone and that should be celebrated. You've got to feel relieved now too. I am soooooo happy for you.
