The nice Doctor agreed that I could take her picture today after I had requested that she make the shapes as shown with her hands.
They signify that today is officially the end of the countdown; Five Years, Zero Cancer.
Call me a slab of bacon, I am considered cured.
The Doctor is now eligible for sainthood because of her work and tolerance of me for 6 years.
Sorry, we didn't cry. We congratulated each other, did some retrospection and then went on our way with my promise to come to their office and visit on a regular basis.
Even now, I remember all of the things good folks did for me during what I still call one of the best times of my life. To pay them back, I'm still an active volunteer with The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and bmtinfonet as a mentor to folks going through a diagnosis/treatment similar to mine.
Through ourselves, we grow Heaven on earth.
