Journal entry by Sandi Klinko

This is the rainbow I’ve been praying for!!!

All the cliché sayings that I’d hear, they’re finally coming true.

There’s so much going on in the world right now that it feels like there’s a dark cloud over us. However, as for my health, I have some good news!

I just learned from my Oncologist at MD Anderson in Texas that I can take a break from any treatment for at least 3 months! Maybe longer or maybe I’m even done. Cancer free and treatment free!!! This is the fIrst time in almost four years and I’m beyond happy! 

A summer of being chemo free, cancer free, and feeling good...not even Covid 19 can bring me down. 

I have been breathing easier and each day I am getting stronger and stronger. I started Yoga in my living room a week ago, I walk further each day, and I’m starting other exercises soon. It’s going to be a bright (bright) sunshiny day.

A Providence Medical Advance Heart Failure doctor says I have heart failure. I am not a doctor 🤷🏼‍♀️ but if that’s true...and in my mind that’s a big “if”, this won’t slow me down. I plan to recalibrate my body in the next few months and wait to see what we’re really dealing with before I accept it. 

I told my surgeon if he just does his job, I will do the rest. He passed me the baton and I’m determined to win this race with the mighty Lord’s grace and will.

This will be my last Caring Bridge post unless something happens that requires us to reactive it. The most important thing I want to say is THANK YOU. Thank you for your support and prayers. I have been overwhelmed by the best version of the human spirit that I’ve been so lucky to see. 

Sending all my love back to you. 🤍

Stay healthy, happy and wonderful my friends.
