When Darla Jaye, a former Kansas City talk radio host, rang the "cancer free" bell on her last day of treatment, she was bursting with joy ̵
Jaye rang the bell at Harris Health System in Houston, Texas, so forcefully, the clapper flew right off.
"I couldn't even be done, I was so overwhelmed yesterday," she told CNN. "Guess I didn't know how strong I was!"
Jaye said she was first diagnosed with breast cancer in February. She said she had a fast-growing tumor, and thought she was going to have chemotherapy. She ended up being treated with 30 radiation treatments, and yesterday was the last one.
"Even though I knew what was coming, you really don't know when you lay down on a radiation bed getting ready for treatment, "she said.
Jaye says the doctors saved her life. "I am very, very grateful."
