While most people associate a new year with resolutions, I relate it to the anniversary of my cancer. And while most think of 13 as unlucky, that number is a blessing to me as it signifies the years I have been in remission from Non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
It’s said that cancer changes one’s life, and it certainly did for me. I learned that asking for help is a sign of strength; to take that risk you evaded; to not take yourself so seriously; to set priorities (including yourself); and to live each day to the fullest.
Here’s to lucky 13!
