Seven years ago today my husband heard the words from the surgeon while I was in recovery “its bladder cancer and it looks invasive to me”. In the past seven years we have done chemotherapy, radiation and multiple surgeries. In the past seven years we have fought battles, laughed, loved, cried and lived life.

Today I talked to my son about his wedding next year, today I talked to a friend about what I would like to do on my birthday, today I talked to my other son about the holidays, today we signed paperwork to buy a house we plan to retire in, today I have what many take for granite a future and hope.

I know that this is a strange place to put the fact that this is my 7 year anniversary since I was diagnosed with invasive bladder cancer. But when you are new to this it is hard to imagine that the day will ever come that you can again trust in the future I just wanted to let you know that in time it can happen.

I wish you all hope.
