Hi...I am Jean. I found out that I have small cell cancer in May of last year. I nearly died after the first chemo treatment but they pulled me back and started the remaining three treatments at 75% to which I have responded well to. I am currently considered in remission but I do have small cell and know what that means. I do fight not losing weight as during chemo I lost down to 103. I try to hold around 121 now. (I have dieted all of my life and this is weird to fight weight loss.) When I joined Sparks originally I weighed 183 lbs.
My maintenance program is working as far as diet goes! But as a result of lifestyle changes due to cancer I need help with fitness when I don't have the heart or desire to get some minutes in.
If you think you are beaten, you are. If you think you dare not, you don't. If you'd like to win but think you can't, It's almost certain you won't. Life's battles don't always go To the stronger or faster man, But sooner or later, the man who wins Is the man who thinks he can. (Walter D. Wintle)

Hi! I just joined the team. My current kits are Graysby, a grumpy gray, Puff, a flame point Siamese, and Quark, a tuxedo cat of inexhaustible energy. We've trained them to do dog tricks: sit, turn around, jump through a hoop, shake, high five, and more.
