Happy "43 Months & I’m Still Alive" Day!

I’m celebrating today. The celebration isn’t about sports or politics—or a birthday or anniversary.

43 months ago today I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. 43 months. That was the median life expectancy for a multiple myeloma patient in April, 2007.

I’m not cured—my cancer is still hanging around. But I’m alive and well and preparing to fly to Pennsylvania to speak to a group of my fellow cancer survivors who are all hoping to do what I have just done—beat the statistics and live again to fight another day. Now that’s worth celebrating!

Feel good and keep smiling! Pat
