Thanksgiving, Cancer, and Birth

Happy Thanksgiving. This time of year always reminds us what was going on 9 years ago. Our 28 year old daughter was pregnant and diagnosed with breast cancer. She chose LIFE but also found the best medical care available. Our precious chemo baby was born on Thanksgiving Day. How appropriate! After her birth, there was yet another miracle when mom...

Unconditional Love For The Unborn
Take It To The Voting Booth

A Member of the Breast Cancer Club
Komen Doesn’t Speak For Me

It isn’t yet October but the ‘pink’ breast cancer awareness folks are already ramping up their fundraising frenzy. This most likely leads you the believe that, as an almost thirteen year cancer survivor, I am enthused about the varied events, products, and stories coming out of the breast cancer money machine.
