LIVESTRONG:

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.

WARNING:
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.

SO VERY PROUD to be an American

While watching the Presidential Inauguration , I am SO VERY PROUD to be an American. 

Yay President Obama. I m so looking forward to the next few years with you at the helm. Your speech was so inclusive today and touched on many very important issues going on in our country and world today. It is my hope and wish that your entire team can come together to make some very important changes and improvements.

Bittersweet -- Tears & Relief

Today is a bittersweet moment for me as we have all lost another cancer friend who fought valiantly against cancer, as best her frail little body could. Debbi Chapman Dempsey, lost her battle with cancer yesterday. Bittersweet because someone special has left us all, and because an angel is now free of pain and amongst us.

Debbi and I connected online as we were both fighting cancer at the time. We both were blogging our experiences at the time, she as A Too Sassy Gal, and she posted many words of support for me. But she found it more challenging to keep up her Blog as of about a year ago, so then I followed her via her journey on Facebook and ached at all her pain and struggles, especially this last year.

Debbi had a very strong faith in the Lord and was so very positive and supportive to so many. If you Google her name and "cancer" you will see that she followed many blogs and frequently posted words of love, support, and encouragement. Then, not only did she struggle so, but she watched her grown children also struggle with serious ailments of their own. Oh how strong she was to carry on as she did, through hospitalizations, complications, and such.

Debbi enjoyed one last wonderful Christmas with her family and then she left this world.

May you be at peace sweet Debbi, and watch over your family and friends with the love and spirit you expressed all through your valiant battle. I know you will be looking down on many and act as their Guardian Angels to see them through all the bumps in the road of life.

G o   i n   P e a c e ,   f r i e n d .


You will be missed by so, so many.
