A Post from Teresa

Hello All,

Well, it is the new year and with that comes a fresh start. It has been a year since my journey with cancer started and it's been a challenging time, but a time that has stretched me and made me grow in ways I could not have imagined. On January 21st, Brandy and Scott brought me into the city to have my P.E.T scan. This is a scan where radioactive sugar is injected into my body and then I'm sent through a C.T scanner and any active cancer cells will show up in bright yellow. I anxiuosly waited for results and on January 27th, I received the ALL CLEAR!!!!! Praise the Lord.

I wanted to say thank you to all who have thought of me, prayed for me and supported me throughout this journey. A huge thanks, especially to Brandy, who organized the crop for me in August and who is always asking how I"m doing. Your friendship means everything to me, Brandy.

So I will start the new year fresh. I am starting a research job in April (which I had started last year but had to quit). I am so looking forward to this job.

I would not wish this experience on anyone, as there were days where I couldn't even get out of bed, but I am thankful I experienced it, as it has made me aware of what really matters in life (which is scrapbooking) Haha. I am a better person because of this journey and I look forward to what will come next.

Thanks all for your support!
