These are the words that you dream of hearing the minute you hear the words cancer, leukemia.
Yes, today marks 3 years without chemo thus Larry is a long term survivor!!
This day is filled as life, with mixed emotions.
Who would have known that on this same day 3 years ago a fellow ALL fighter would lose her fight and that this coming Saturday we will celebrate the birthday of our dear Dana Morgan, eating desert first !
I am struck by the 3% of separation as well as the new found blessing of friendship that is a family for us to celebrate all our future milestones !
Larrry wanted today to be low key but also wanted to be sure to celebrate with his classmates that have been there every step of the way so I took lunch for all to share and celebrate.
He is always reminded of those that stepped up, stepped in, and simply were a part off our activities of daily living in those early years.
Some of you are still involved, some have moved on, and others have moved out of Tucson. Whatever the case and circumstances we applaud you today and ask that you know we are here today because of you.
We are thriving because of your unconditional love at a time that we needed it ! Thank you.
Celebrate YOU today. Hug those you care about a bit closer. Extend a kind word, gesture, or text to someone, and live with JOY ! Because to quote the survivor: Larry, “It is what it is, which is what you make it !”
