What an accomplishment

Those who have been with me for some time are aware that our dear DIL was diagnosed with breast cancer in November of 2009.  She had surgery and it was diagnosed as Stage IV.  She underwent chemo and radiation and did well until November of 2010, when a tumor was discovered in her brain stem.  She had radiation for that and has done well since then.  This dear girl had started studying for her Master's Degree in Speech Therapy prior to the initial cancer diagnosis.  During the period of time when she had surgery, chemo and radiation, and then radiation again, she continued her studies.  Then in June of 2011, she graduated with an outstanding grade average.  She is shown below with her family.  It obviously has been a difficult journey for the entire family.  Our son was a rock for her.  Her tests have continued clear, and we obviously want so very badly for her to remain in remission.


  1. Congratulations to her and her family. What wonderful accomplishments. Will and determination play an amazing part in recovery. I know, I have been there. Good thoughts and prayers that all remains well.

  2. Congrats Tonya!! Such wonderful news to hear.
