My Supercalifragilistic Girl A.

So yah. My Girl A. The one who was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer less than a year ago. The one who got herself thru 8 rounds of chemo this past winter. The one who had 38 (ish?) radiation treatments. The one who has Kicked Cancer’s Ass. That Girl?

Well. Let me just share a lil’ bit of an update. She’s feeling incredible. We’ve had some dinners, sleepovers, walks with her dog…she’s made her annual trip working for an out of state Golf Tournament – as well as a crazy week away with me to chill poolside and sight see in Savannah.

She’s feeling strong. Has been working with her personal trainer since February, continued her Pilates class throughout all of her treatment, ran two 5k races and signed herself up for the Disney Marathon in January. She is also the one responsible for signing me up for the Warrior Dash (which we did this past weekend). As we sloshed through miles of mud and jumped over fire and crawled over 30foot high walls – we were mostly smiles and enjoying ourselves. After one super hard, super muddy incline, she got to the top and said “I’d take chemo over that ANY day.”

Now that’s a Warrior, eh?

I’m so so so proud of her.

And of you people, for reading my words about my very best friend.

Yeah! I was in Charleston a couple of weeks ago and saw a couple of friends (one of whom had recently battled cancer) on a trip. They were having the time of their lives! I love it when things have a happy ending :)

Momma - you're an inspiration to those of us who try to "do right" in the world, just like A is a motherfucking inspiration to all of those who want to live life to the fullest.

I'm so proud of A's approach. So happy that she's had you for support, and so jealous that you ran a warrior dash.

Do you ever read comments on other people's posts that say, "I'm sobbing" or "tears are streaming down my face" and think, "Really?"

Really? That made you CRY?

I'm not a crier. When I come across comments like that, I wonder if everyone is always PMSing.

All the time.

But this one?
Holy crap.

I've got tears.
So good. So, so good.

Hugs to you and your very best friend.
(VBS - oh yeah!)

You BOTH kick ASS!
