My greatest accomplishment since WC:

Was Surviving Stage3C Breast Cancer and raising two wonderful sons with the most wonderful husband in the world. Now it would be battling Stage 4 Terminal cancer.

The person who has influenced me the most:

My mom and grandma have influenced me the most in my life. A lot of my strength comes from them. They stood by Leroy and I, along with friends, and provided the most awesome support group we could ask for. I cant thank them enough.

My favorite quote:

Dance like no one is watching; Sing like no one is listening; and live each day like its your last.

Most difficult challange:

The fear of the "unknown" and managing to take it on one day at a time.

How I would like to be remembered:

Touching the world one friend at a time with love and kindness where ever my path may take me!

Best relationship advice:

Just love and respect each other. The little, petty things that you fight over....aren't important at all in the grand scheme of things.

The job I would choose if nothing else mattered:

Write children's books or work in the healthcare field again.

For fun I like to:

Spending time with the boys and Leroy. Swimming, boating and motorcycling.

Comments:

I have had a bit of a battle the last couple of years. In July2006 I was diagnosed with Stage3C cancer, which is pretty big on the rictor scale. :o) I went through a masectomy, 2 reconstruction surgeries, and one huge sepsis infection that put me in ICU for a week. Whew! That was a close one! But...I found out I am pretty tough and...I have a nicely shaped bald head. :o) I am still very happily married to Leroy. He is and has been a wonderful, strong husband through all of this. He just picked up and took over everything so I did not have to worry about a thing but getting better. We have two sons, Dakota is 13 and goes to Raymond Park Middle School. Jake is 8 and goes to Lowell. They are such good boys and handle everything so well. I am blessed to feel good, but have recently been rediagnosed with Stage 4Terminal Cancer. I am continuing the battle everyday. But....I dont look sick, dont feel sick, so...just going to pretend Im not sick!!!
