Graduation is coming up


I will be graduating from law school in a month! This is an unbelievable accomplishment for me. Most of you know I was diagnosed with 3b cervical cancer during my second year of law school. Told I only had a 20% chance of surviving I knew I would never be able to finish law school. Even if I survived I couldn't imagine going back after surviving something as devastating and paralyzing as Cancer.

I did return to law school only 6 months after diagnosis and one month after being cleared of cancer. It was a difficult journey however, nothing could compare the difficulties I endured fighting cancer. Now I am proud to say that I am only a month away from accomplishing something that seemed unaccomplishable.

I've decided to have a little graduation party and was wondering if any of you creative gals had some good ideas for the party. I am having a HUGE party in Massachusetts after I take the bar but I felt like I should also have one after my actual graduation (in FL). So any creative ideas would be greatly appreciated :)

Also, we have a great special going on at Get The Bean. Buy 3 lbs of coffee and we will give you a sample bag of our Pumpkin Spice!

And....if you want to help me raise money to fight cancer check out our charity Coffee

I think you should have a "bar" party. Coffee bar, alcohol bar (if you drink), dessert bar, etc.

CONGRATS, GIRL! : )

First of all congratulations!! That is inspiring to me because I am in school and going through treatment at the same time. It can be done! I was wondering if you could send me some HPV information. I am including it in a project on diseases of the reproductive system. Thought you would be a great source =)

Gabby said...

You, girly, are amazing.

A cancer survivor AND a law school graduate/future lawyer...I've been reading your blog and it's inspirational and educational. Thank you for being so open.

Not sure if I have any party ideas, but I love the 'bar' theme and of course the Law & Order music! I would be carrying a tape recorder everywhere I went. LOL

Thanks for commenting my blog - anytime you're in So Cal, you have a standing invite!
