Special Thank You Cookie Platters


Today is a Blessed Day for our family, especially for me.

It is also a mixed emotions day, because today is my last chemo treatment for breast cancer.

I have waited for this day with lots of anticipation, and now that it is here, my feelings are mixed. I am happy and scared, at the same time.  Happy that it is finally over, and my body is free of this dreaded disease, but scared because I will not have all the medical attention I got so accustomed to during this past year, which became my “safety net”.

I am very blessed to have a loving family, and ALL of YOU, who supported me, and cheered me on, during this unexpected journey.


I am very thankful to my doctors and all the nurses who worked so hard to bring my health back, and helped me keep my head, and spirits, high.

Today, I will greet them with platters of assorted cookies, to sweeten up their hard-working day, as I admire their positive attitude, knowledge and hard work.

I have an important message for all of you,



A lot can happen in one year, as I have found out.

    What a sweet (literally!) gesture, to give the cookie platter to your doctors and nurses. But more importantly CONGRATULATIONS on this milestone!!!! We are so happy and grateful that you are done with treatment, and the cancer is gone. You are a true inspiration of what a strong woman is and I had no doubt you would beat this thing!

    Thank you sweetie for your kind words. I feel so relieved and blessed, by having this ordeal behind me now.
    I would have not done it without all my support system from my family, friends, and even total strangers whom I never met, but were praying for me and contacting me with strong words of encouragement.
    I always baked something new for the oncology nurses, to bring in at each of my regular visits, because they have a very tough job , yet they do it with compassion and smile. For finally, I decided to go all out, and bake a variety of my favorite recipes….they loved it!! They told me that the Rum Balls were ….quite “rummy”….:-)
