In December 2006, a few days after my 45th Birthday, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I have always had a close bond with Jemini. He was constantly by my side through the surgery, chemo, and radiation. Jemini would lick my feet when the neuropathy from the chemo affected my toes. He kept tears from being shed when everyone thought I was taking things so well. My treatments are coming to an end September 2007 and my Jemini is still by my side.
