I have been celebrating since my final treatment. Steve, Olivia and I celebrated on the 19th of December (my final treatment day) with my parents and our good friends, Travis, Michelle and their son Paxton. I had so much adrenaline because I was so excited to be done. We went to dinner at Mi Mi's Cafe and I had my first glass of wine since March. I only had a few sips as it didn't taste that good to me but I still got to do a toast to ending my cancer treatment journey.

We try to go to lunch every other week.

We spent Christmas Eve with my parents:
Papa just finished reading T'was the Night Before Christmas
Christmas Morning we opened presents from Santa and headed to Remsen to spend Christmas with the Pottebaums!
I had quite a few more photos to post but my computer is so slow it would take me all day to upload. =)
Steve and I spent New Year's Eve celebrating our 6 year wedding anniversary with very good friends.
I had my first event for the charity I started Auntie Em's Angels. (http://www.auntieemsangels.com/) We raised over $6,000 from our first event and helped Brea Nelson and her family to help pay her medical bills. Thank you to Brea who had a hand in catching my cancer before it reached stage 4 and which helped catch my mother's cancer before it spread to her lymph nodes.
I find out in March when I have my final surgery and will have body scans in February to keep a close watch to see if the chemo and radiation helped in fighting my cancer.
I can't thank you all for all your love and support...it has helped me continue to be strong, positive and to pay it forward to help other cancer patients in need.
