I want to give an extremely happy update on someone that was featured on “Paul’s Heart” several years ago, Stephanie. You can read her story under “Pages”, titled “Stephanie’s Words.”
Stephanie is a survivor of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma like me, but unlike me, she is young and I must admit, a determination stronger than me. Our journeys with Hodgkin’s were quite different, and our life in remission is also quite different. But as you can see in the photo collage, she has come a long way over the years.
Well, if you are someone dealing with cancer, whether at the beginning stages, nearing the end, or beginning your new life after cancer… then look no further to see that there is life after cancer.
Stephanie got married last week to her long time boyfriend, and when I say long time, I mean that he was with her through her battle with Hodgkin’s. Together, they were already tested with “better or worse, sickness and health.” Stephanie and her husband are a formidable team having gone through one of the most difficult times in their lives, and that was before they were married.
Along with continued remission, remember Stephanie, I am always “looking in my rear view mirror on the road of remission to make sure that you are still following me.” I look for more big milestones in your remission, but even bigger things to come for you and your husband. Congratulations Stephanie.
She’s got a “5 year Remission” picture too!!!
As soon as she sends it to me, she was kind of busy this week for me to ask before I posted the story, I will share that as well as a wedding photo. Nothing inspires another than what is witnessed with your own eyes.
