Topic: Great day for scans and Dr. Chapman!!!
I just had a great day, I started the day with blood draws, 6 month CT and MRI scans, doctor visit, and ended the day with an award ceremony and reception for my hero, Dr. Chapman.
I had great scans so I am now 3 years and 2 months cancer free!! Dr. Crippin spent my office visit time discussing my trip to Charleston SC. He was so excited about how great I was doing he didn't want to talk medically!!!
I then had the honor to be invited to an award ceremony for Dr. Chapman. The cermony was very impressive with the president of Barnes starting the speeches and Dr. Chapman ending the speeches. Dr. Chapman talked about transplant and reasons why and then spent a long time talking about CC!!! He talked about Wayne Parsons wife (showing her picture) and then introduced our Wayne!! Wayne flew in from Hawaii for 72 hours to be there and yes I got to meet and visit with this member of our CC family!!! Dr. Chapman continued talking about CC and then the next thing a picture of my daughter and I was on the screen and he was explaining how transplants do work for CC!!! I made sure at the reception time that people knew how humble he had been, because he never mentioned how I had 2 because he wouldn't give up!!! I was so honored to be there so he could put a face to his trial making it personal and not a clinical study and to also meet our CC family member Wayne Parson.
Lauren, Tiff, Kris, Lisa Patty... this has been a bad week for CC , losing our dear friend Kim but I am here to remind you there is HOPE!!! Keep praying and fighting and you will be paying it forward too.
Lots of prayers and thank yous for all the prayers-Cathy
