Happy birthday??? Really?
It is not the day my bride was born,
nor is it the day that we discovered the tumor,
nor is it the day we were diagnosed...
It is the day, 1 year ago today, that my bride did her first chemo treatment.
Why is this worth memorializing? It is important because on this day 1 year ago, my wife went from someone who was being attacked to being the attacker.
She went from being a victim to being the one to vanquish this inane disease.
