My new banner, a field of poppies on Bornholm in Denmark (of course!), is in celebration of my “Cancerversary” tomorrow. I originally began my blog with a Wizard of Oz analogy (see “My Journey With Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma” at the top of this page), as I (Dorothy) entered the Woods (Cancer) with Toto (Herbie) and good friends at my side (YOU!). Throughout the past year, I’ve kept a vision of poppies in my head and on my blog as a symbol of my emergence on the other side of the woods. Today, thanks to chemo and surgery, I’m in remission and I find myself in a field of poppies, but the yellow brick road doesn’t end here. I have alot of healing to do and over the next few days I’ll share thoughts about where I’ve been, where I am and where I intend to go.
Thank you for sharing this journey with me!
