      Hi y'all,

      Today is my birthday. Every milestone is reason to celebrate, with melanoma. Birthdays, anniversaries, first days of school, kids learning to drive, school performances. I'm just happy to be here to see them.

      To those who are in a bad place, I lift you in prayer. To those who are responding well, or even better, NED, hooray!

      I can walk, feed myself, hug my kids and husband, and work. I have nothing to complain about, and much to rejoice about!

      Life is not perfect. I'm still stage IV. Still have painful arthritis from Zelboraf. Hair is still thinning, along with my brows and eyelashes.

      But I AM HERE TO CELEBRATE! What more is there to say?

          Happy Birthday!   Take the day off of cancer. Get a big chocolate cake (or post in whatever your fav is) and let your kids blow the candles out.

          Enjoy your day!  cheeky
