This summer was one of many milestones. I turned 40, had my tenth wedding anniversary, and last week I met with my oncologist for my regular post-cancer follow-up appointment.
My blood test showed zero sign of cancer.
Five years of remission is significant because it’s widely acknowledged in the oncology world that when there’s no reoccurrence recorded in that interval it’s long enough to say statistically that a person is cured.
That acknowledged, it’s telling to me that this fact is now less significant then the other two big number related events of the summer: the start of my fifth decade and my second decade being married to my amazing wife, Renee.
All in all, tons to celebrate and I’m so grateful for each part of it.
