My 2 year Lumpiversary!

Call me crazy, but I'm not the only breast cancer survivor that has temporal markers in which we make notable observance. Almost like a holiday on a calendar (except that cancer is certainly no freakin' holiday!), most every cancer survivor recalls the exact moment in which they found a lump, knew something was amiss or 'just knew.' So, I know that I am no different from my fellow warriors.

For me, this day will be etched in my memory, well, FOREVER! I recall every detail of the tickle that I felt on this day back in 2011. I still like to credit my dad from above for his antics yet again for helping me find that sucker (thanks dad!).

It's been one hellova ride to say the very least. But again, I'm exceedingly grateful that what feels like just yesterday, was in reality, 2 years ago. And here I am, alive, and looking back at the day I began the third fight of my life.  Can I get an AAAAMEN!


  1. There are a lot of dates that keep cropping up to remind us aren't there? I not only have my dates, I have my mom's as well. It always amazes me how I can remember these dates so easily, but can't remember when my next doctor appointment is... well, actually I guess it makes sense, but I think you understand...Anyway, glad you're at this milestone! Yeah! I mean, AMEN!

    1. Wow, you have 2 sets of dates swimming in your head! That certainly provides you with many reminders & memories. As for not being able to remember the other things in life - I get it! I just sent out a mass email to remind our staff of our holiday party - with the wrong date!! OYE! The joys of chemo brain! HA!
