BRAVO Angelina! She underwent elective double mastectomy because she was given such a high risk factor for both breast and ovarian cancer. Though she has not said so in so many words, I do believe she did this for her 6 children. I TOTALLY relate! AND - I applaud her decision, her courage, and her 100% positive attitude and outlook. Such a rare and controversial decision, but at least and at last not as rare as it once was AND I no longer feel so isolated!! …Continue

I am a firm believer knowledge is power. As I read and learn more of what is happening and going into our food the more I want to protect my family from it. Unfortunately it really is becoming an every day battle that at times…Continue

Coffee has always gotten a bum rap because the caffeine in it is a stimulant, which doesn't exactly go hand-in-hand with a healthy lifestyle.

Cell phones have become a way of life and more and more I see them in the hands of youngsters. Many families no longer have a house phone (mine included) because everyone is reachable via cell. Have you ever seen that commercial where everyone is fighting over the minutes in the data plan? It goes something like…Continue

There, I said it even though it is hard to utter those words out loud. It is amazing that I started this blog because of a shocking pregnancy and I needed an outlet to talk, then the death of my Mom, my own health issues and now my dad.…Continue

Our eldest son, Hayden, informed me that I neglected to introduce you to two members of our family the other day. So, I’d like you to meet our beloved dogs, Max and Coco. Both were adopted into our family. Coco, from a rescue shelter only months after Greg and I were married. Max, from some friends of ours at church who could no longer keep him. Each have enriched our lives in many ways and we have been tremendously blessed…Continue

She stopped us as we walked out of her office, and said, “Wait here.”
A few seconds later, she handed me a stack of reading material.
“Here you go.” “There is some good information in here for you.”
For just a brief moment, I was taken back to a memory of receiving another mound of information in a doctors office. 24 years prior to this one.
Back then it was for a new pregnancy = new life.
This time it was for c.a.n.c.e.r = beating…Continue

I enjoy reading inspirational books. Hearing His Whispers by Lauren Miller not only inspired me, but it taught me to become a more committed believer in God.
Along with the inspirations came many hours of non-stop tears. Can you imagine at the young age of 38 going through a divorce and at the same time fighting for your life? Well, Lauren Miller was diagnosed with stage-three breast cancer: Invasive Ductal Carcinoma two weeks prior to her final divorce court…Continue

Here is yet another list of whacky things I've learned lately. Included this time is the realization that the world would be a happier place if everyone ate Thanksgiving dinner in their pajamas. Click over to my blog for the full list:…Continue

Hubby is a guy who usually wears a bald head and NEVER keeps hair on his baby face...he claims it itches, so when I saw the initial fur growing on his face, I was a little concerned. Was my man getting lazy? Ughhhh... Thank God, the answer to that was no. For the month of November, he has been growing a mustache, something…Continue

Last night, I was reminded once again just how lucky I am to be blessed with the kids I have.
My oldest daughter, (she is 9), has always been a thinker and a worrier. She takes everything in, even when you think she isn't listening, you can pretty much be sure that she is.
I am not sure if I have mentioned it before or not, but last year, I was diagnosed with breast cancer.
It has been a long year and a half - the kids had to deal with a lot that I wish they never had…Continue

I write to you today from my treadmill where I am attempting to walk off some anxiety and to make sense of why cancer exists. Once again our family has come face to face with it and I know that it has impacted your lives too.…Continue

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month
I became an orphan at 42. I can remember an episode of Golden Girls when Blanche Devereaux announced that she was an orphan upon her father's, Big Daddy's death. At the time, it seemed somewhat absurd that a grown woman would consider herself an orphan. Now I understand.
I lost my father first. In 2001, he died after battling the horrible disease- PSP or Progressive Supranuclear Palsy. My…Continue

Here is an article I just had to share with you, from Dr. Mercola. He does sell his own products at the end of some of his articles and his style is sometimes sensational, but overall I find most his articles to be very informative and trustworthy. (Check out the statements I’ve emphasized in bold.)
Mike did research in molecular biology before he went to medical school, so he…Continue

If you’ve read some of my other blogs, you already know that my father recently underwent a stem cell transplant. (If you didn’t, then get to reading!) He was in the hospital for over two weeks which, unfortunately, coincided with his first grandson’s graduation from high school.
We planned on using iPhone FaceTime so that he could watch the graduation live, but since we did not have internet at the stadium that idea fell through. I tried calling…Continue
