Welcome to my page.

I am on a mission to fight Cancer and win. I will do this by being positive and strong while taking care of my mind, body and soul. I will make myself a number one priority.

So far I've survived 100% of my worst days in this one year period. I look back at where I came from this past year, triple bypass heart surgery, radical hysterictomy, 2 laposcopic surgeries, chemo therapy, kinked bowel, radiation, CTscans and follow ups. I am proud of my progress. Some days I struggle more than others with side effects (when they kick in). That in itself can be challenging. But it's not going to stay that way forever. I have had some great days in the past, but I can look forward to even better days ahead. So I will take the bull by the horns and go for the ride of my life. Instead of circumstances trying to control me and trying to make me feel defeated, I will continue to fight the fight of my life with all the power that is within me. I am stronger than I seem and braver than I know. Each day is getting closer to better days.

We are all SURVIVORS the day we are diagnosed with Cancer.

Cancer and Survivorship is very much an attitude. It's a state of mind. Hope is a constant companion. Determination is the fuel that ignites our energy. Love and support is the ammunition to win this battle. Cancer changes people. It sculpts us into someone who understands more deeply, hurts more often, appreciates more quickly, hopes more desperately, loves more openly and lives more passionately. Life during and after Cancer is what we make of it. we can choose to let worry and "what if's" take over or we can embrace each day with determination. People call us brave but we know it's not about bravery. It's about doing what we need to do to fight and win the Cancer Battle. We never know how strong we are until being strong is the only choice we have.

We have 3 choices in life....give up, give in or give it our all. I'm giving it my all.

Cancer is just a chapter in my life. Not the whole story.

Hey Cancer, your picked the wrong lady to mess with.


Don't You Quit

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit-
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,

As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a fellow turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than

It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
Whe he might have captured the victor's cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out -

The silver tint in the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It might be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

    We are soft and feminine, pretty and stylish.
    We are strong in heart. We keep going on and on. We persevere...
    Women are dependable, loving, and caring.
    We keep our men going, when times are rough,
    We are very tough.

    There are all kinds of beautiful women in the world...
    All shapes and sizes, different personalities.
    We make up a good part of the world, We go through a lot.
    We get the worst end..of breakups and heartache.
    We get the emotional baggage, the periods, the cramps,
    But that is only a small fraction of who we are.

    We can be anyone we want! We're independent.
    We can be doctors, lawyers, teachers, Journalists, surgeons, soldiers.
    accountants, mothers, givers, caring and loving of others.
    The world is our oyster, and we are the pearls.
    Love fills our souls...we are so full of life.

    We shine like diamonds in the night sky.
    We may rise and fall, but through it all,
    We stand up tall.
