About a year and a half ago, my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer, requiring surgery, chemo, hair loss, the whole nasty works.
A year later, she's happy, healthy and, so far!, cancer-free.
And it's her birthday! Looks like we've got plenty to celebrate (and it's Friday the 13th -- same as the lucky day upon which you made your grand entrance into this world, isn't it? Not that I was around to witness that or anything).
Happy, happy birthday to my big (er -- guess that should say elder, you skinny thing) sis!
What a treat to be able to say that! :)
