The Boston Globe alerted me to something I missed this year. New legislation in the state of Massachusetts that if you have dense breast tissue that you must be notified that a) you have dense breast tissue b)that it may increase your risk of breast cancer. The full text of the Act Relative to Breast Cancer and Early Detection can be found here. How did I miss this in June? I think I was busy having too much fun. In fact I know I was.
This year was pretty great. I continued to have a clean bill of health. I did things I never would have done before cancer; running long distance, online dating and becoming that person who awkwardly overshares all aspects of her life in person and not just online. I also returned to the track to run like a boss!
And the biggest event for all of my family was the birth of my precious niece. It's really great to have this little ball of sunshine. My colleagues have been great and allow me to torture them with endless photos. My roommate allows me to put photos of her in the living room, kitchen, hallway....I'm a little obsessed. As previously posted she truly is the manifestation of love, joy, strength, and perseverance. And cuteness. Holy Cuteness Batman.
In 2015 I am looking forward to more visits with the niece. I will try to eat less sugar, but given that I ate two cookies while my oatmeal cooked this morning, it's going to take a lot to reform my cookie monster ways. There just so good! I am looking forward to all the new survivorversaries and all the other celebrations the year with bring.
See you in 2015!
