My Pre-Chemo Party

As I awaited the details of my diagnosis I was clinging to the hope that I could get by without going through chemo, but unfortunately when I went in for my follow-up appointments I was told I’d need 6 rounds of chemo over an 18 week period. Xavier and I decided to make the most of my last few days before our new normal would begin and planned a pre-chemo party. I knew it would only be a matter of time before my day-to-day included nausea and fatigue and I loved the idea of one last night to see all of my friends and celebrate my upcoming treatment. We had the party at Cidercade, Bishop Arts Cider Co’s taproom and arcade. We had an absolute blast and I felt so loved and encouraged by everyone who came. I highly recommend having a “last hoorah” before chemo! It will take your mind off of the long road ahead and you might be surprised by the people who show up to celebrate and support you.

A big thank you to Goodies Cakery for this fun cake :)
