|Fighting like a Girl..giving my final class presentation
of graduate school
Many thought I was crazy for continuing with my graduate school career as I faced several aggressive rounds of chemotherapy in my battle to fight stage 4 Ovarian Cancer. As graduation is quickly approaching I am glad I have always been a little crazy, and determined to complete a journey I began three years ago. Last week I gave my final presentation of my graduate school career and tonight I will attend my last class. Tonight is bitter sweet, as graduations always tend to be, as you relish in completion of a strenuous chapter and as you say goodbye to many friends and look back on memories made both in and out of the classroom. Before I can completely celebrate graduation I will have to get through three more chemo infusions, and then I can look forward to graduating with my Masters in Social Work from the University of Oklahoma on May 11th!
PS That is not my Coke Zero in the picture. My first round of chemo cured me of that habit.
