The light at the end of the tunnel!

The light at the end of the tunnel!

Tomorrow is my final radiation treatment! Woot woot!
For my final nuking I will get the gold chainmaille drape. This special fabric is suppose to intensify the radiation. I get to wear it every other treatment.
Today I met with my oncologist and we discussed the next phase of this battle. For now, I will start taking a drug called Tamoxafin. I will stay on this for 5 years.
I am really looking forward to being able to focus on something other than the day to day cancer battle. I am hopeful that this new drug will not cramp my style too much!


  1. Yay, congratulations SIsta! I’m so glad this phase is behind you now. I see you’ve been holding out on me, I didn’t know you got to wear fancy gold clothes for this. 🙂 Hang in there, your humor, grace and guts are an inspiration to all of us!
    Love you,

  2. Well, I see what you mean about the lamé! I never got one, only the silicone look alike pad.
    Do you get to keep it?
    I was on tamoxifen for 5 years… no side effects except weight gain… and a few hot flashes, mostly in the summer. Now I am on Letrozole, same basic med except for “older’ women!!
    So glad this is the end of the daily visits to the radiation unit. I was so happy when it was over!!
    Time to relax and a bit of celebration???

  3. YEAHHHH!!! I,m so glad Gen!! It’s been a long 9 months for you. Smooth sailing from now on I hope and you sure deserve to have joy and peace in your life

  4. so thankful end of treatment/radiation. I had radiation for breast cancer,
    it was called mammosite. It was a catheter placed within the area of
    cancer/surgically removed, and then radiation flowed out of the
    catheter into the tissues. I am with you, praying, and believing
    for total restoration and healing. Thanks for sharing. ((soft hugs))

  5. Home stretch sista. Slowly but surely, with your incredible strength and determination, the day to day focus will return to building the beautiful life you have. Battling cancer will become a footnote. You are awesome. i am so proud of you. I’ll call you tomorrow:)

    love you!!! sp

  6. Tomorrow’s for celebrating, celebrating the end of radiation and on to better days. I am so glad you can put this phase behind you. Your smile in this picture tells it all Gen. You’ve got “true grit” and you wear it well.
    Love ‘n hugs,

  7. I will be very pleased to be part of your celebration for the end of radiation. I will wear my gold lame slippers! I also promise not to squeeze you.

    Love and hugs…..Judy
