    Thanks for visiting! This site is for anyone facing a cancer diagnosis, recovering from cancer, being treated or caring for someone being treated, and anyone else who needs a lift. I am still here, seven years after facing Inflammatory Breast Cancer, and life after cancer is different than it was before. It’s actually better, for me. Even with the inconveniences and remnants of my cancer fight, being here on the planet, making my unique contribution and being with my family, is a blessing I never take for granted.

    So many of us blog while we are in it, and then, after the heroics, we breathe a sigh of relief and get on with our lives.  I have done that too, with a renewed commitment to my work and to my family, but I make sure to stick around here so y’all know I’m real and that I’m still well.  I know that’s so important when you first receive a terrifying diagnosis, to know that others have beat it.

    While it may seem like cancer occupies your whole world right now, you are so much more than cancer.  Being all that you are, and following your life purpose is how you make it through, for a little while or for years.  I have friends who still deal with cancer and are living longer and better than they ever expected.  Others of us remain cancer free as far as we know.

    And what is your life purpose?  According to the Dalai Lama, it is to be happy.

    If you or someone you know has just been diagnosed, please check out my video below. It’s three and a half minutes long, and could make all the difference. By the way, Martin is my 17 year old son.

    This is my little web sanctuary, offering help and hope to the weary I hope, and some encouragement with your practical information.  Nice to see you.
