Email Diary

It’s Been Five Years

Dear Friends, Today I'm wishing myself a Happy Anniversary - five years ago today, I found out that I had breast cancer. Amazing how quickly life changes. You have been with me for most of the journey; crying with me, laughing, praying, and rejoicing. You have impacted my life far more than did the cancer.

The five year mark is important - five years cancer free increases the odds of remaining cancer free. But because of the cancer, my life HAS changed. I've become educated about the disease, have become an advocate to eradicate breast cancer, speak on the subject, and have developed a website for women with breast cancer, their family and friends. Please check out I trust you'll find it useful - please refer those in your lives who are touched by the disease to the site. is an ever-evolving site - I hope that it will positively impact many lives.

I'm also in the process of beginning a sporadic email newsletter about breast cancer containing information that is new, tips, and musings. If you'd like to receive this newsletter, please let me know. I promise not to intrude too often.

My prayer for all of you is that you have a wonderful Holiday season and a fantabulous New Year - thanks for being in my life!
