And in June 2013 we are back in the revolving door of doctors, this time for my heart. So the focus has shifted, BUT... I continue to THANK YOU for your prayers, love & support. I receive them with open & loving arms. My wish is that I will gain strength from you, will provide strength to others & will help to strip away the fears we each experience.

LIVESTRONG: I am strong. I am loved. I am healthy. WE WILL WIN!

Have you or your loved one had their annual mammogram? PLEASE, don't put it off. Speaking from experience, I highly recommend monthly self exam as well.

Contents may be uplifting, sad, funny, scary, downright depressing ~ THAT IS CANCER .... at it's best, at its worst.

PLEASE ~ Feel free to share this blog with anyone who is interested to learn about my journey. While I welcome their support, I hope that by sharing this experience freely to the universe I may help to support others by breaking down some of the barriers and fear associated with breast cancer and the treatment.

First hair cut

Here I am, almost a full year after my last chemotherapy treatment. I just had my first hair cut in over a year. Granted, my dear friend and stylist, Susan,  took very little, if anything off. But I just needed a bit of shaping and to get some of that "chemically treated" hair trimmed. She always makes me look so much better than I am able to do.

Thank you, Susan. Your a doll.

  1. Hi Debbie,

    I admire that you are able to share such an intimate journey with the world. My family has a history of breast cancer with my great aunt undergoing a lumpectomy less than two months ago. I was feeling overwhelmed and wanted to have a sense of control back in my life, so I decided to get involved with the breast cancer nonprofit community. It has given me the opportunity to feel as though I am fighting this disease right along my family and friends who are continuing their journey with the disease.

    I found this and thought you might be interested in helping get the word out:

    The Keep A Breast Foundation were nominated for a $250,000 Chase Community Giving grant. This youth-focused nonprofit organization educates about cancer prevention, early detection, and of cancer-causing toxins in the environment. The recipient is determined by votes and winning would mean that they could continue their awesome work in education. I was thinking that you can help them get the word out. Thank you!!! Polls close September 19th. People can VOTE here:

    They were so excited about the nomination (and being the T-Swift fans that they are) they made a video parody of Taylor Swift's We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together  entitled We Are Never Ever Too Young For Cancer. It's super cute! WATCH it here:

  2. Hi Sarina,
    Love your cause and your site. I will definitely help to share the word here.
