Continued from September 16th, 2009…

We exchanged numbers, but never called one another.  By pure coincidence, we ran into each other at an Imerman Angels event.  We laughed over the fact that we had both hung onto each other’s phone numbers and that we should have used them.  Ever since then, we have been there for each other.  We go out, we share intimate worries about recurrence and mentally surviving cancer.  As I had looked to Laura for hope, she turned to me for some as well.  Things had come full circle.

Jennie Grimes was planning to come to our wedding on July 4, 2009.  Anupam and I had a small, very romantic wedding on a cliff overlooking the ocean on the island of Vieques, Puerto Rico.  It was the biggest celebration of life and love that I’ve ever witnessed.  The jubilant energy at the Dacha House was infectious!  No one could have ever imagined that my life would turn out so differently.  I’ve never felt so much love or happiness! 

Jonny Imerman and many others who made my healing possible, smiled from ear to ear.  Having been party to bubbles, and beaches, and beauty all around while they witnessed this cancer nightmare turn into a fairytale.  We will be celebrating my two year survival mark this August.

Jennie was diagnosed one week prior to our departure with Stage 3, Uterine Cancer.  She, obviously, was unable to make it to our celebration.  It is theorized that this tumor was most likely a side effect of the drug Tamoxofin.  An oncologist prescribes the drug, in order to prevent Estrogen Receptor Positive cancer from recurring. While she faces another battle with cancer, she knows that she has “Angels” all around her.  Jonny, Laura, and I will never let go.
