A Decade - 10 Year Cancerversary

My GYN-Onclogist, Dr. Jason D. Wright and me.

It has been a decade since I was declared Cancer FREE.  What a blessing - I give thanks to the creator of all things.  I am grateful to be here and I am grateful for these past 10 years.

I want to thank so many people - the list is so long, but you know who you are. You all play a role in taking me to where I stand now - small role or big role - it doesn't matter, I am grateful for you all.  Thank you for the bottom of my heart.

With all my love,


May - An Emotional Roller-Coaster Month



I cannot believe it is May already.  We are entering the 5th month of the year and we are 121/365 days down.  WOW! time flies.  May for me is kind of an emotional roller coaster month.

My Big Confession

On September 12th, 2019, it will be seven years since I lost 113 pounds.  It is amazing to me how time flies. I still remember how I felt, like if it was yesterday.

I was Free. 
Free from Cancer. 
Free from Obesity. 
Free from Medications.
