This is just a way to express my thoughts as I walk this path and journey through as a breast canSURVIVOR.

Make cancer mad, just piss it off by misspelling it..... like "canzer"

It's a Matter of Life & Death

This canzer-thingy sucks. It's mean and it does kill.  How long is it going to take before someone finds a cure that is 100% effective?  I followed Lanie's Blog .... and then reality hit once again.

I also follow Lil Blue Boo ... Ashley is amazing and celebrates "Choosing Joy" every day. I can't even begin to compare our diagnosis or treatments (nor should I), but to say that she is a very strong individual who kicks butt.

This disease creeps into our lives and changes us forever. 

If we are blessed to reach remission, we are still looking over our shoulder and wondering if it will return. (as in other blogs I follow listed on the right side of my blog)


A wonderful friend of ours is in hospice.  He is in his final stages of his home-going. We all have an ending story. A beginning, a middle and an end.   I can't imagine facing death without God .... it would be too lonely, too depressing.  I'm thankful that my eyes are wide open now about life in general.  I wasted much of it with stupid stuff.  Now, I get a chance to make things right in many areas of my life.


Don't wait to get a diagnosis like cancer ...
make life altering changes

  1. Hey Sis, its been about a week since I commented, but I always read your blogs and check in on you. Perspective is a funny thing. You have a friend who is in hospice and it puts your canzer in a different light. I've had the flu for the last two days and then I think of how you must feel with the chemo. It can always be worse and there is much to be thankful for.

    Love ya,

  2. Hey little Sis, shucks I hope you feel better soon :( Lots of chicken noodle soup! I agree, perspective is definately a funny thing! Take good care, xxoox
