Why is this date special to you?
It was the beginning of a new life for me.  I felt like a champion after going through chemo and radiation treatments.  I felt more thankful as I never felt before. It was a very special day for us.

Is there something special that you do each year to honor or celebrate this date?
This year is going to be my first year as a survivor. I am planning to celebrate by calling all of my love ones that supported me through my fight and thank them for all the love I felt through me from them.

Why did you choose to share this date with Imerman Angels?
Because when I needed the most support, IA was there for me.  My Angel showed me that there WILL be a tomorrow.

Is there anything else you would like to tell us about you or your loved ones journey with cancer?
I read once that anyone can slay a dragon, but trying to wake up every morning and loving the world all over again… that’s what takes a real hero.  This is what I think about every cancer survivor.

This blog post is a part of the Imerman Angels “What’s Your Date?” Campaign, honoring & celebrating cancer stories.
