Today is my 10th cancerversary of appendix cancer diagnosis back on February 5, 2010. Unbelievable. I remember when I didn’t think I would be around to see my daughters finish elementary school and enter middle school. Not only did I get to see those milestones but now one is in college and the other a sophomore in high school. My husband has been forever supportive and my extended family and friends have been with me all along. Thank you to all for your love and friendship!
Additionally, I have graduated from MD Anderson cancer check-ups! I always hold my breath before these visits but the tests indicated that I still have no evidence of disease. After almost 10 years of cancer scanning appointments, I am now released into the wild!
I asked my artist friend, Maria Vittoria Sesta, to create a piece of artwork that expressed my emotions and have given it as a gift to my doctor.
I feel so blessed and grateful for another year!
No doubt about it. You’re a warrior. I celebrate your victory ❤️
Now THAT is something to celebrate!!!!!! Love you Ivanna.
Congratulations Ivanna!!! The art piece is beautiful and conveys the story.
So excited for you, Ivanna! God is so good. I know your healthy lifestyle helps you too. Love and miss you guys! Can’t believe the girls are so old now!
10 years!! Good job continuing to live!! You’ve helped other patients, and of course you’ve been there for your family. So happy for you!!!
Wow Wow Wow! The painting captures everything. Shine on and celebrate the mystery and miracle of each day. Hope to see you around ATX soon!
So happy for you Ivana, remembering how many prayers went up for you to our wonderful heavenly father, the master healer.
He works in mysterious ways His wonders to perform.
Truly you are fearfully and wonderfully made. All praise to Him.
Keep dancing in the light of His love for you and your precious family.
Thank you, Darla!
