It’s that time of year again. The leaves are turning, the temperature is falling, and the over commercialization of the pink ribbon has started.
Yes…it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, that time of year when every product in Walmart, Target, and the grocery stores decorate their packaging with a pink ribbon. I… Continue

I have just celebrated my last birthday in my, ahem, later 40′s and I have come to realize that I am definitely looking my age. Which I have no problem with – really – as long as I “age gracefully”, I am happy with the way I look. I can truly embrace my wrinkles but, at the same time, I still do want my skin to look as healthy and toned as possible without resorting to “procedures”.…

Try to remember to forget anger, worry, and regret. Live while you have life to live. Love while you have love to give.

Did you know that May is Skin Cancer Awareness month?
I didn't...until just the other day. Skin cancer is something that most of us associate with the older age, but it hits a little closer to home for me. I grew up in sunny San Diego, California. Like every good San Diego… Continue

Today I get to do what I love best ... Travel! I have been given the opportunity to fly to another part of the world and experience life in a new and different way. I have been given another day.
Barry Allen Baldwin isn't as lucky. His days have ended, cut short by the evil monster called cancer. Barry was a year younger then I and the father to two young sons. His wife of 15 years will now need to learn to live another day…

Last year I began a journey, one that I never would have choosen for myself or for anyone else. On August 11th I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. I knew very little of the disease, its cause or the journey that lie before me. Over the next several months my days were filled with doctors visits, tests, radiation, chemotheraphy and eventually surgery. Although treatment took several months I was able to enter the recovery phase by the 1st of January.
For many this is… Continue

It always seems to start with a phone call.
This time the call came during dinner preparation, a pot roast simmering in the oven with a pile of carrots and potatoes to peel. As the phone rang, I glanced distractedly at the caller ID. I didn’t want to answer. I didn’t want to answer because I had carrot juice on my hands. I didn’t want to answer because I knew who was calling.

Time has a funny way of fixing things. Over time, pain is forgotten, the bad times of the past are blurred, fear evaporates leaving only residue, and only the fading scars are left.
January 31, 1996 was a Wednesday and as I look back and remember the day, there wasn’t much on the world radar screen. A lot of things blew up around the world on this day, especially in Sri Lanka with bombs planted by the Tamil Tigers and trucks filled with explosives being rammed into the Central Bank.… Continue

In 2005, one of the most beautiful, inspiring women I have ever met was taken by cancer. Lynette was born in 1973. If you do the math, she died much too young. She was a young wife, a new mother....

October was officially National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink ribbon themed events were in plentiful supply. I participate with many groups and organizations like most do during the month. But in the cancer community, cancer does not come once a year. It is a twenty-four hour, 365 day a year fight to strike down the dreaded disease. I chose to partner with individuals who understand that in order to beat cancer we must make cancer awareness and… Continue

So Wednesday the north country of AZ was hit hard by severe thunderstorms and 27 tornado warnings. Four that touched down where I live, and one that was just 6 miles from my house heading right for us. One tornado knocked a freight train off the tracks and picked up and moved diesels off the road! It made national headlines here
. So glad we were spared!...… Continue
