Christian and I (Sarah) are the parents of a 4 yr. old, beautiful, sweet boy named Sven who was diagnosed with Leukemia on 4.19.09. Immediately we started chemotherepy treatment for Sven with the Pediatric Oncology Center @ Stony Brook University Hospital on Long Island, NY. I will outline some highs and lows and most of all type some frustrations away :-)

1 in 10,000

Ok so 1 in 10,000 shot of Sven getting cancer! I approach my anxiety dealing with cancer with humor (well I try it gets easier as the time passes) so when me and the other cancer mom's are sitting around the clinic I try and keep a smile and one of my lines is "yeah with these odds ya think I could have hit lotto, No I get the cancer jackpot"  and I feel that is what the whole of 2009 was one big crappy lottery with us winning jackpot after jackpot, for instance, not only was Sven on the most difficult month of his chemo protocol HE GOT THE SWINE FLU on top of it! C'MON are ya kidding?

So with that all behind us I am happy to report that I actually won something cool today, an organic tee shirt for Sven from a (they have tee's with the best saying's ever!) giveaway at Savvy Coupon Mommy! I called my husband at his office and was so excited he was like Sarah it's a tee shirt.... but after further explanation he got it too, our luck is changing we are on an upswing, we are really good people who should be having a really good life, it's a good omen, 2010 is going to be a good year, we will laugh with Sven, enjoy our family and cry for fun and happy things, we will finally be able to see that we are sooo fortunate to have eachother everyday! We will worry just a little less of what is lurking around the corner, we will kick cancer's butt! Whooo hoo we won something good!
