|All dolled for campaign closing celebrations last weekend!|
But I didn’t.
|So proud of Sean for his 7.5 years of work on Penn State's For the Future Campaign!|
I celebrated Passover. First with my soon-to-be-in-laws in Warminster and then with my family in Virginia. The Millers and my family knew but we kept it a secret from everyone else. We didn’t know what I faced yet. We didn’t know how advanced the cancer was. We didn’t know what my treatment would be.
I ate, I drank, I laughed. We had Seder as planned. And it was beautiful and fun, just like it always is.
All around us people were congratulating our new engagement. And I smiled and was gracious. But inside I was thinking about the breast cancer. Those “cancer cells.”

|Night 2, 2014 in Reston!|
The call was Monday. Tuesday was the second Seder. Tuesday Lloyd took our engagement photos, as planned. And Wednesday we drove to Hershey and began.
I’ll never forget that day. When Passover rolls around each year I am so grateful to be able to celebrate, actually CELEBRATE at Seder. Not have that heartbreaking news in the back of my mind. Have my mind free to actually celebrate.
|Got to meet Daniel and Laura's new baby on the way from Warminster to Reston! He was such a doll :)|
Three years ago, tomorrow, we were stirred.
I often think about that day, and everything I’ve been through the past three years, and wonder and worry if I’m going to have to face it again. I worry about the breast cancer coming back.
|Passover 2014 <3|
But I have no reason to today. So instead I move forward. With that little bit of fear in the back of my mind. WE move forward. Wedding, honeymoon and new house behind us, we look to the future. G-d has a beautiful thing planned for us this year.
