Dear Cancer

    This is My Life! I Own It!

    This is MY LIFE! I OWN IT! To all in the cancer community, we are WARRIORS, and we are a family of WARRIORS!

    Hateful and Thankful

    Today I told a coworker I don’t cry when I’m sad, only when I’m angry. And as I write this, I’m crying so many angry tears at you. I hate you with all of my being. You ruined the life I had, all my dreams, aspirations, friends, and so much more.

    Who Is Really to Blame?

    A few weeks ago my son Steven was diagnosed with cancer, again. And not just one cancer, but two. Learning of his diagnosis took my breath away. Not again!!!

    My Blood Brother

    Cameron’s parents were high school sweethearts, worked at the same company, got married, bought a house, then set about starting their family. They were overjoyed when he was born. Their first child. A son with big brown eyes and blonde hair. They called him “Super Cam.”

    Why I Get Up and Fight

    I would be lying in my room wanting to die, just then I would hear cooing and giggling out in the living room; always at the perfect moments- reminding me why I was doing what I was doing.

    Healing Power of Nature

    In June, to celebrate my remission and being together again as a family – my family lives in Manila and I’m in Texas – we took a trip through Colorado, South Dakota, and Wyoming. There, we saw Mount Rushmore National Memorial, visited Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, and went white water rafting.

    The Post Cancer Letdown

    It should be the happiest and best time of your life- now that you have one again. But for myself, and so many others, it’s not. I’d say it’s the second worst day, right behind the “You have cancer” day.

    Death and Dying

    Death has been heavy on my heart the last few weeks, but my sadness tonight is finally overflowing onto this page.
