Beth Rings the Bell!!!

Beth is my brother Chris' lady love, who has been in treatment for cancer the last few months. Here is what she wrote yesterday: "Well, I just had MY LAST CHEMOTHERAPY TREATMENT TODAY........ YIPPEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(((((:>)!!!!!!!!! The doc says I am in remission!! I still have to go in for my weekly lab work & my every 4-week Zometa IV (to keep my bones strong, similar to a strong calcium suppliment), but otherwise, no more chemo!!!! My next appointment is on 12/17 where he will review my lab work & decide which hormone (estrogen) blocker to put me me on. We will also discuss what future preventative/proactive measures we will take as well. I am soooooooooooooooo happy..... I got my Christmas wish!!!!" Chris sent the pic, above, and wrote: "Beth had her last chemo today and she is in full remission. WOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOO! Attached is a photo of her "ringing the bell" (which you get to do on your last chemo treatment).
She was in such a hurry to get out of there I didnt get a very good shot of the bell or her face. She just wanted to be GONE from there!"
