Hello everyone!

Tomorrow is my last day of class before summer starts. At 10:30 am, I'll be free. Well, not totally. I'm going to spend my summer studying for the PCAT (pharmacy college admissions test). But I'll at least get to see a whole lot more of my family, and I'm excited for that.

What If

Posted by Meg Tapp on April 15, 2014 at 6:24pm 1 Comment

I don't have any known late-term side effects from my cancer treatments. However, I underwent two and a half years of fairly new, intense chemotherapy. They don't know exactly what the long-term results could be, and that terrifies me. I would never have it any other way, of course - without treatment, I would have died. Still, sometimes I find myself wondering "what if?" I think it's the biggest question on the minds of many cancer survivors, and that's why I'm going to address it…
