Happy New Year!

Happy New Year PostGoodbye 2014! On December 31st, we were supposed to celebrate the end of our journey with Shane’s last chemo. Whether we would have rung a bell or thrown a party, it doesn’t matter. The celebration would have been short lived and we would have had to pick ourselves up higher than we have in the recent past. We cheers to the end of the hardest year of our lives. We have hard feelings, but as always you must find the positives.

We have ourselves a little fighter. Shane was not expected to make it this far. The doctors are constantly amazed at his progress. For his strength, we are thankful. My husband and I are a solid team. Who says you can’t meet your soulmate in a bar? Chase and Ella are braver than they ever knew they could be. Through this all, we have maintained their lives as best as we could.

We are blessed with supportive family and amazing friends-new and old-who are by our side every step of the way. While 2014 was not as we expected, we have learned a lot about ourselves…our strengths, what pure joy and happiness is and above all to be thankful for each and every day. To all those fighters out there, we are lucky to know you…to share the ups and downs and to find support in one another.

Happy New Year to you all and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your love and support along the way.
The Metzgars
