“In the end, she became more than what she expected. She became the journey, and like all journeys, she did not end, she just simply changed directions and kept going.” — R.M. Drake
Following my final radiation treatment last Monday, I am beginning to marinate in the realization that eight months of total life disruption are finally over. I have reached a vantage point I had not yet had the nerve to imagine until now, but yes, it is incredibly true.
I am completely finished with all of my cancer treatments. It is my moment to exhale.
I feel like a champion in the extreme sport of cancer. And, although it was only the first, I feel like it was a personal best.
I did it.
