13 years of waiting for that phone call are over. My doctors have given me a clean bill of health. I no longer have cancer.

I don’t even know what to say or do. I’m so elated, relieved, and just I don’t even know. Right now I just want to take a nap and re-assess. Holy shit! I don’t have this ugly weight on my shoulders anymore. I don’t have to worry about ungodly hospital bills. My dad can breathe easy. Everyone can breathe easy.

If it wasn't for everyone and the support and words of encouragement and the keeping me focused I honestly think the last 13 years would have been the worse time of my life, rather than the greatest. Thank you all. I love each and everyone of you so very much! Gracias y te amo todos! Moltes gràcies i els estimo a tots! Obrigado e eu amo todos vocês! Je vous remercie et je vous aime tous! Va multumim si va iubesc pe toti! Grazie a voi e vi amo tutti! Spasibo e ya vas vseh lyublyu!

Now break out the streamers, party hats, and the drinks!
