I will always remember that Wednesday, September 8, 2010 was my chemo round 5. There was a Stand Up 2 Cancer telethon on that Friday (9/10/10) that I desperately wanted to attend, but no dice. We watched it from the happy chair. I remember that September 30 was my 6th round of chemo. It was a Thursday and I wore a purple wig.
When I make connections to my life two years ago, these are the days that pop up first. Then I think about the day sevens that were all the low points in each round (both in terms of my blood counts and my physical state). They were milestones, too.
In honor and memory of all of the day sevens everywhere - all those people who dread them now, and all of those who will come to know them in the future - we are again participating in LLS's Light the Night Walk, October 27, 2012, in Philadelphia.
