nine and thriving

Today’s magic number is 9. It is my cancerversary. Nine years ago today I heard the words: you have cancer. Nine years ago today I chose to thrive, no matter what the outcome could be.

Two years ago I was reminded at diagnosis I had a 20% chance of living to 5 years. And that every year I live beyond that, the chance of recurrence goes down. I will never stop counting how far I’ve come.

I am grateful for this day and every day.

Oṃ śānti śānti śānti
