Here's me, pre-cancer





Here's me getting my head shaved at the wig party pre-chemo in July 2012





Here's me, totally bald, mid-cancer treatments, having finished a 4 mile race on Thanksgiving Day, 2012. It was very difficult because my body was so ravaged from the treatments, but I insisted on doing it with everyone else. When I finished, I cried, and dozens of strangers came up and hugged me.



I have 5 pics in my gallery

Scared healthy

I am a young person who is starting life over as a cancer survivor. My cancer was directly caused by my obesity. The torture of these twelve long months of treatments along with the life long scare of recurrance is enough. I'm only 33, and cancer took an entire year of my life, along with my uterus, ovaries, and 18 lymphnodes. I will never be able to experience pregnancy and having a child. My weight raises the risks of things going wrong again - I'm already in a very high risk group ...
I am a young person who is starting life over as a cancer survivor. My cancer was directly caused by my obesity. The torture of these twelve long months of treatments along with the life long scare of recurrance is enough. I'm only 33, and cancer took an entire year of my life, along with my uterus, ovaries, and 18 lymphnodes. I will never be able to experience pregnancy and having a child. My weight raises the risks of things going wrong again - I'm already in a very high risk group because the cancer spread to my lymph vascular system. And, for something a little lighter in subject, my fiance and of nearly ten years and I are finally getting married this December (2013). I'd like to be healthy - weight and cancer-wise- and, hopefully, have enough hair grow back to be able to style it.
