So very THANKFUL to have lived past the 2-3 years that the medical statistics gave me.
❤ I am thankful for my outstanding medical team who made it possible for me to live pain free and dance.
❤ I am thankful for the research scientists who developed the treatments that made this possible.
❤ I am thankful for my family and friends who have supported and encouraged me.
❤ I am thankful to receive so many prayers, messages and letters of encouragement, and donations for my medical expenses.
❤ I am thankful for the non-profits who provided cancer comfort items & bags; arranged amazing trips & outings; and provided financial assistance.
❤ I am thankful for the writers, reporters and bloggers who shared my story and helped to make people aware that metastatic breast cancer can strike even very young women who follow a healthy lifestyle.
❤ I am thankful for the dance community who have supported me in so many ways: suppliers donating dancewear & shoes to keep me dancing; dancers donating their artistry and talent for my benefit concert; choreographers creating inspiring dances for me to perform; and dance photographers capturing moving images of me that will live on reminding everyone that No One is Too Young; No One is Too Fit; No One is Immune from Cancer.
