NOCC Run/Walk 2013

As opposed to last year's experience, this year's NOCC Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer was nothing but pure joy.

Joy to be healthy, joy to be surrounded by friends and loved ones, joy to be running. (Yes, that's right I love running. Its official.) This day was almost exactly 18 months since my diagnosis. It is unbelievable to think about where I am now, in comparison to where I thought I'd be given the news I initially received. I just couldn't be more lucky BLESSED.

I also got to put my handprint on the Survivor's Banner - and one of my fellow survivors Lorelei!

And while the above should demonstrate this without me having to say it, I'll say it anyway. None of the past 18 months would be worth anything if not for these people above (and a few who couldn't be there in person). My health, my life, nothing would be worth it if I didn't get to share it with such wonderful people. I love you all so much.
