In March, my friend Rachel (@colonology) was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer. I met her through work, but she has become a much closer friend than one could hope to ever have in a colleague. As of November 10th, she is officially in remission. YAY!!!! She’s been a role model for me through this whole experience. Despite surgery, chemo, personal dramas, and the challenges everyday life can bring, she has remained positive and upbeat and has never hesitated to crack jokes about some of the ridiculous things that have happened.

A couple of weekends ago, she dressed up as a superhero for a costume party. Little-boy underpants on the outside and everything. (In case you weren’t aware, many superheroes seem to have underpants outside their outfits.) Although she (fortunately) doesn’t wear underpants outside her outfit very often, she’ll always be a superhero to me.

Congratulations, Rachel! I foresee some great celebrations ahead.
