Living Life While Battling/Healing Cancer

I started this blog on July 1st while sitting in the Yonkers’ Boat House at a beautiful desk made for writing the ultimate novel.  It overlooked Rainbow Lake in the Adirondaks.  I had 180 degrees of the most tranquil views.  As I sat at the desk and watched the raindrops falling, the view was absolutely […]

Four Years Ago

Four Years Ago I found out that not only did I have cancer but it was Stage 4. That day and my emotions are forever etched into my brain. After my first surgery I woke with fire in my eyes and the goal of all goals, become resectable against the odds and then achieve those […]

Friendship Paddle 2016

  As I sat in the chemo chair yesterday I couldn’t stop thinking about this past weekend and the amazing energy and love that was felt by all and channeled to Ethan, Anna and Sawyer. I have not stopped smiling and my energy is radiating positivity and love. I am so impressed by the guys […]

Forty-Four and So Much More!


Happy 44th Birthday to Me! Today is my 44th birthday and I could not be more excited to be celebrating one more year of life. It drives me crazy to hear people say they don’t want to celebrate another birthday because they are getting old or those that decide to stop counting because getting old […]

Chemo Today, Schatzle Yesterday

Today marks Round 7 of Battle Number 2. I woke up this morning and decided I needed to start my day off with some relaxation in preparation for the chemo chair.  I headed for a soak in the jacuzzi and a little meditation time with our Buddha in the backyard. I focused on making Round […]

Three Years Ago and My Journey Continues

November 8, 2012 will forever be etched in my brain.  It was the day that I heard the word that no one wants to here.  Cancer.  I did not think it could get much worse but then on November 9th when I met with Dr. Pamela Lee I learned it could get much worse and […]

Two Years Ago My Life Changed Forever

November 8, 2012, I went in for my first colonoscopy.  For those of you putting off your colonoscopy please don’t.  Colon cancer is slow growing and the quicker you catch it the better.  The procedure itself is really no big deal compared to the prep.  My friend Megan dropped me off and was going to […]

One Year Ago Today – September 25, 2014

One Year Ago Today I woke up at 4:30 am to get prepared for the surgery that would save my life and eradicate the remaining cancer.  One year ago today after 7 1/2 hours of surgery the doctors felt they got it all.  One year ago today I was laying in the ICU at Keck […]
