Final Round

My sisters and I during my last big chemo
A Goodie Bag for every patient

Hi friends! I finished 18 rounds of chemo today. Although it will go down in history as one of the most difficult I was loved and supported through it, and am now able to rest at home. I have commissioned my dad to write a post(with pics) about the day tomorrow. What I do want to say is thank you to the OU Graduate Social Work Association that made it possible for my parents and sister to pass out a Goodie Bags to every patient at the Stephenson Cancer Center. A caretaker stopped me on the way out and simply said “thank you, my mama needed some of those things”. Wish I could have chatted with the family and other patients more, but that sentence is all I really could’ve wanted to hear. Thank you for the prayers and kind words today that covered me in a dark time.

    Tarah – You rock. There is no other way to say it. I love your inspiring and uplifting posts. It is amazing to me that you have stayed in school, stayed active and had the energy to put together gift bags for other patients to brighten their days all while looking for the silver lining and thanking God for everything He has done for you. Congratulations on your graduation! Hugs … susan
