Cancer Free Groceries - Part One

So... I went to the grocery store on a mission. If you disregard the fact that I left with a large container of ice cream (on sale, half price!), I did pretty well and I learned a few lessons.One of the tricks, I'm learning, is to limit shopping as much as possible to the exterior edges of the store....more

Into the Lenten Unkown

I feel as though I may have been a bit rash yesterday.The issue at hand is still very real, and very important to me, but the immensity of the project at hand is overwhelming.Globally, more than 10 million people are diagnosed with cancer each year. In 10 years the World Health Organization expects that number to grow by 50%....more

And the Scare Tactics Begin

From the start I knew there would come a day when I would think to myself, “Do I really want to share this much? Do I really want to put out such personal details?” Whether it would be a blog about how scared I am on a particular day or one with details about what is going on, I knew that day would come, and here it is.

This Blog and I Are Under Construction-Stay Tuned :-)

On December 1, 2009 I had an endometrial biopsy. On December 9 I got the call: "It's cancer; stage II" followed just minutes later with, "Oh, yes! The organ must come out! And maybe the ovaries." NOT! :-) Cancer is no longer the "Big C" or a "dirty little secret." Not only have I been guided since that phone call to not travel this journey to healing that way, but I also believe, deep in my heart, that it is nothing but a Divine Opportunity. ...more

When Your Friend's Death Wish Is Granted

It came as no surprise to hear that my friend of 40 years had terminal cancer. It was just the type of cancer that was the surprise. After spending over 40 years smoking two, sometimes three or four packs a day, imbibing scotch, smoking weed, and flirting with cocaine, the surprise was that the diagnosis was leukemia, not lung cancer. ...more
