Chemo 100%'s official............................I am 100% through a total of 16 chemo treatments.  Today is a good day.  I'm so excited.  There really are no words to describe how happy I am right now.

In honor of today, my girl Julie had a great idea to release 16 pink balloons into the air.  So, tonight that's what we are going to do to celebrate this huge milestone in our journey.  Hopefully, we get some good pictures that I can share.

I would like to take a moment for a HUGE THANK YOU to my girl's - Emily, Erin, Lauren, Julie, & Christel.  They provided chemo presents for each treatment.  They were just small things, but I looked forward to opening them.  I can't list everyone individually, but I have been blessed with lots of love from lots of people, including parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, co-workers, friends and co-survivors.  I received texts, cards, flowers, food and LOTS of LOVE.  If you showed me your love, I noticed and I appreciated everything even if I have not thanked you in person.  And I can't thank everyone enough for all their help with Charlotte.  I have needed lot of people to help watch her, and someone always came to the rescue.  Steve deserves an EXTRA HUGE thank you and big pat on the back.  He went to 15 chemo treatments with me and every doctors appointment I have had.  

Even though I still have more milestones to go before I am officially "done", chemo in my book is one of the biggest and most difficult.  I made it through and am coming out the other side smiling and extremely positive!!!!!!    


  1. Thrilled with you that the chemo is over! Watched Stand Up to Cancer last night and thought of you and other friends and family who have battled this enemy.

  2. What a relief! Congratulations - you are a rock star and another step closer to this all being put behind you!

  3. Hip-hip, hooray! A HUGE round of applause for finishing your chemotherapy treatments, Erin. Rooting you on from afar.

  4. Woo hoo! Sorry I am just seeing this post now. You are a warrior, hero, and strongest woman I know! I am so proud to call you my friend:)
