This year we are giving cancer the middle finger!
2018 isn’t going to be about cancer or neuroblastoma. its not going to get the attention it doesn’t deserve.
2018 is time for Riley to learn lots of new things and to have more adventures. Everyday he wakes up with a smile on his face showing cancer it didn’t win this battle and its not about to destroy his day.
Riley knows he had cancer but he doesn’t let that beat him so why should we let cancer be so focused on in 2018? We shouldn’t!
We know the side effects from his treatment will be there with us daily regarding his physical development & his ears but that is something we are dealing with now, sooner rather then later in the year. We’ve just got an appointment sorted out for ENT next week!
We’re going to make lots more memories. Try lots of new things. Adventure further and laugh so much more then we have done before.
2018 also marks 2 full years in remission which is obviously amazing!
We’ve focused our lives on cancer so much these past 3 years, with Riley having all his different treatments, tests & scans in between them & then waiting for the results. It gives you the worst anxiety you ever have to experience. Don’t get me wrong the anxiety is probably always going to be around tests & scans because you will never know what they’re going to show.
But! 2018 is going to be a good year. No more negativity, its time to laugh, smile and enjoy life. Life without cancer for a change.
So here’s to 2018. The year we give cancer the middle finger!
