My life changed abruptly in July 2010 when a lump in my breast was diagnosed as cancer. A whirlwind of tests, dr appointments, surgery, chemotherapy, & now radiation began. I have lost my hair, my identity, my job. I have gained a sense of gratitude for many things I took for granted. I tell the people I care for everyday how much they mean to me. I don't waste my time on people that are of no value in my life. I'm trying to figure out how to live life again.
