Dear Doctor D,

Just a quick note to wish you a Happy Birthday.

I appreciate all you have done for me over the past fifteen months. I remember thinking I was just run down and fighting mono or something similar when I came to see you last spring. Little did I know then that I had Stage 3B non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

I remember last summer, kayaking down the river in front of your house between chemotherapy sessions, my port-a-cath smarting with every paddle stroke.

This summer I have my old stamina back, and Dr. Schwartz told me last week that my CT scans look excellent!

I know my lymphoma will likely come back some day, but right now I feel great. Life is good at the moment, and I am grateful.

Thanks for being there,

Jane W.
