Celebrating Five Years!


This week, my friend Lisa (an amazing person and a breast cancer survivor) is celebrating Five Years Cancer-Free! 

Lisa and I have known each other forever, and even though we only get to see each other a few times a year, we always pick up right where we left off.  Here’s a picture of us on New Year’s:

She also reads my blog (thanks, Lis) so I’d love it if you could help me surprise her and leave a comment here wishing her a Happy Five Years!

And if you didn’t happen to see the Pink Glove Dance when it was first going around YouTube, make sure you click here or watch it below. It’s an awesome video to help inspire breast cancer awareness and it will seriously brighten your day!

For more “Wordful” / Wordless Wednesday fun, stop by Angie’s Seven Clown Circus or 5MinutesforMom.

Thinking of you, Lisa!

    You are so sweet to mention me in your blog today. Thank you to everyone for your comments, it really means a lot to me. I'm sure you have figured out by now that Genny is not only a talented writer, but an amazing person and friend. Even though we live in different states she has been there for me throughout my entire cancer journey. She flew up to Portland for a weekend to sit through a chemo treatment and has always been just a phone call away to help me make difficult decisions or just let me vent and cry. Thank you for being such an incredible friend, I love you so much!
