My Journey Through Cancer ...

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…

Swirling Parallels

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.

Surviving Time

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.…

An Iron Man With a Soft Heart: Chuck Beard Trains for Families With Cancer

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

A Tribute to my breasts! Funny really I promise!

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

To Tattoo Or Not

I have a dilemma. I want to get a tattoo. The perfect little Fleur de Lis on my ankle, but I am getting mixed support from my

family, and I can’t quite make up my mind.





See, I already have a tattoo…three to be exact, but I don’t count my tattooed nipples because that’s more reconstructive than self-expression. My tattoo is a

pink breast cancer ribbon tattooed above my right breast…the side I had…

Are You A Hero?

Some say we don't have anymore heroes but I say we do. Let's take a look at what a hero is and decide if you are one.



A hero travels the hero's journey. That's when regular people such as you or me are asked to leave our routine life because something serious has occurred and we are asked to do something about it. We are "called to help." We are called to save our king, our country, our friend, or ourself. And because the task is arduous, we really don't want to accept it.… Continue
