mel's major milestone



December 18th, 2007 was a very significant day for me. It marks 5 years since I finished chemo and radiation treatment for Hodgkin's Disease (which I was diagnosed with in July, 2002). These are pictures of me 5 years ago at Christmas time, and today at Christmas. I can't believe that much time has passed by already! The five year mark is significant because the possibility of the cancer returning drops dramatically. Just thought you might want to celebrate with me!
