Our son, Zachary, turned 21 this past July. In August, on the 14th to be exact we should have done the “happy dance” for Zachary and at the very least remembered the date. August 14th, 2012, was Zach’s 8th Anniversary of cancer survivorship. He’s a survivor of childhood leukemia (ALL). I told our family’s story earlier this year in a three-part series, where you can read all the details of our experience.
I woke up this morning feeling a little bummed out that we had forgotten to mark the date this year. I have never forgotten to celebrate this date since Zach’s chemo ended in 2004. So, since I have this platform to celebrate my son and his good health, I am.
December 2001 – Zach had been in treatment since April of 2001, and continued his chemo regimen until August of 2004.
Turn the clock ahead to 2012-Healthy and strong.
Happy 8th Anniversary, Zachary. Livestrong, Superman.
